Launching economic mobility initiatives leveraging the power of Data Science Education to impact 1 million of students transitioning into the workforce by 2030.
Relationships with our partner schools are integral to the success of our program. We seek to place and train the most qualified science, arts and biomimicry educators dedicated to equal access to education in Rural and Urban schools. We look for school partners that are ready to support an emerging computational data science educator and get their students excited about solving real problems in their community!
NWF provides training opportunities for educators interested in incorporating project-based and place-based learning into their classrooms applying Computational Data Science curriculum tailored to their classrooms or schools.
Teacher Training are co-led by our DS4Everyone Coalition Partners with experience producing educational programs that demystify how a city, county, township or indigenous reservation works and foster increased civic engagement and economic mobility through entrepreneurship, workforce development and college pathways. Educators will learn how to use their community as a teaching tool, how to use data science in everyday life and every situation, how to apply civic-centered design to break down the city’s complex systems, and how to connect their curricula to neighborhood issues considering geography, climate and infrastructure.
NWF is particularly interested in teachers from all domains working in schools located in tribal, rural, brownfield, nuclear communities and opportunity zones collaborate in creating data-based educational resources, professional development and entrepreneurial initiatives.
Teachers learn how to find a site in their community and work with students to identify a variety of potential users and stakeholders. What would different groups want out of this space?
Teachers participate in a series of activities that they can use with students to investigate their neighborhoods. Teachers learn how to use the built environment as a teaching tool, as well as techniques to investigate the social, physical, and political aspects of a neighborhood.
Educators participate in hands-on projects. Teachers learn how to frame questions for project-based curricula, how to use design to break down complex information, and how to frame collaborative design projects with their students.
If you are a teacher, a school administrator, teaching student or part of an institution interested in igniting your school, tell us about what training topics and locations would be most useful to you.
