What is the NES-LTER?
The Northeast U.S. Shelf (NES) Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) project integrates observations, experiments, and models to understand and predict how planktonic food webs are changing in the region, and how those changes may impact the productivity of higher trophic levels.
While not all learners will become data scientists, they will all become data users and consumers. Visualizing, analyzing, and making decisions based on data are skills essential to 21st-century living: necessary for both work and personal life. The LTER Schoolyard program from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution is once again offering its Data Jam which emphasizes creativity in presenting data. Doing the Data…READ MORE

Our team of judges have reviewed 26 projects involving 83 students in grades 8-11 from Massachusetts. In our third year of competition, we’re seeing students challenging themselves with more advanced datasets and new creativity in communicating their data stories. In a challenging year of remote teaching and learning, the technology skills of students and teachers…READ MORE
