Data Detectives Camp (Virtual)

National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) Data Detectives Camp

Registration for the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) Data Detectives Camp is now open!

The NCHS Data Detectives Camp is a science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) camp that focuses on statistics for rising 6th and 7th grade students. The UMD School of Public Health is a co-sponsor of this camp. 

This virtual 1-week, 2-hour-a-day camp (August 2-6) is an exciting opportunity for boys and girls to learn about the basics of statistics through a variety of fun, hands-on activities!

Data Detectives Camp activities cover statistical concepts to help teach kids to think like a data detective: by asking the right questions, collecting needed information, analyzing the data, and determining the answer.
