The SoDa Center is a proud sponsor of the 2021 NCHS Data Detectives Summer Camp

The National Center for Health Statistics (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 camp has been conducted annually since 2016 as a commuter camp, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ll be holding our second virtual camp. The 1-week, 2-hour-a-day camp is an exciting opportunity for boys and girls to learn about the basics of statistics through a variety of fun, hands-on activities!

The camp is conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics in collaboration with the American Statistical Association, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Bureau of Justice Statistics, the CDC’s Disease Detectives, the University of Maryland’s School of Public Health, the University of Maryland’s Social Data Science Center, and the Joint Program in Survey Methodology.
