Data Science is a burgeoning field of both study and opportunities for employment. But what does data science look like in a math classroom and how does this intersect with Social Justice? Join us as we investigate how colorism may play a role in popular media by analyzing media “manually” and with data science tools. This will lead us to ask “Does a disparity in skin tone representation exist in the media? What does this mean? What other questions or lines of inquiry could we pursue with these tools?” While this workshop is intended for adult learners, the content can be adjusted to meet the needs of students and extensive resources will be shared if you want to incorporate this in more depth in your classroom.
