Newsletter for the Section on Statistical Education
Volume 13, Number 1 (Spring 2008)
The 2nd International CensusAtSchool Workshop will take place at UCLA, Los Angeles, during July 28-29, 2008. This workshop is appropriate for school teachers, statistics educators, government statisticians, education leaders and anybody interested in data handling and chance at the school level and beyond. Representatives from Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United Kingdom will provide overviews of how they conduct the CensusAtSchool projects in their countries, as well as hands on demonstrations of the activities prepared for the teachers and the students. Leaders of statistics education in the United States will open the workshop and will also present information about projects conducted in the United States to increase statistical literacy. This will probably be the only time that all five CensusAtSchool countries will gather in the US for a meeting like this. The website where you can find the flyer, the program and registration form can be found at http://censusatschool-california.stat.ucla.edu/. The registration deadline is May 31, 2008.
