Vizkidz: Learning about Data Visualization for Kids

Vizkidz: Penelope Pie and her friends Laney Line, Barnaby Barchart, and Bertie Boxplot.

Special Event

Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy Street
Cambridge MA

At a time when data and its application are considered fundamental to most industries, Vizkidz offers young people a head start by introducing the core concepts of data visualization through characters such as Penelope Pie, Laney Line, Barnaby Barchart, and Bertie Boxplot. Join author Liv Buli, a data journalist, to explore the wonderful world of Vizkidz and learn about the basic concepts of data visualization. She’ll read from her book Penelope Pie Throws a Pizza Party, the first book in the Vizkidz series. She’ll also guide kids in hands-on activities that explore works of art and collections from the Harvard Art Museums.

This event will be presented four times:
Friday, April 21, 10:30–11:30am and 2:30 to 3:30pm
Saturday, April 22, 10:30–11:30am and 2:30 to 3:30pm

This event is presented in conjunction with the Cambridge Science Festival (April 14–23, 2017).

This event will take place in Deknatel Hall, Lower Level.
