Today's learners will enter a world defined by data. By the end of 2020, there will be ten times as many bits of data in the digital universe as there are stars in the physical universe. Already today, data plays a pivotal role in our homes, our workplaces, and our communities. To help ensure our youth are ready for a data-filled future, SSEC has joined our STEM education colleagues of "The Messy Data Coalition" as a charter signatory--a broad-based group of teachers, parents, professional organizations, researchers, curriculum and software developers, and industry members committed to actively and equitably bringing data fluency to K-12 classrooms and learning experiences nationwide. We aim to bring data education to one million classrooms and learning opportunities and 100 million learners in the next decade. As we do, we lay the groundwork for a future filled by communities of data-informed decision-makers and workplaces of data-fluent problem solvers.
