 What is Dataspire?

 Each year, there is a growing amount of data in our lives. However, employers report having difficulties hiring workers with the necessary skills to successfully work with these data (Harris, 2012).

Many of our daily decisions are impacted by science, whether we know it or not. Yet, less than half of Americans report that they understand what scientists actually do (Science & Engineering Indicators, 2014).

Therefore, we believe that every citizen, as informed members of our society and our democracy, needs to be data and science literate. Through Dataspire: inspiring data & science literacy we offer programs to work towards a more data and science literate society.

What do we aim to achieve?



Everyone is empowered to engage with data and science in their lives.


Dataspire inspires and excites stakeholders to be active citizens by enhancing data and science literacy.


  1. Enhance our ability to explore, read, and interpret data.

  2. Build our confidence in manipulating data in models and visualizations.

  3. Inspire critical thinking and ability to ask questions from data.
