A high school student’s journey to bring R into the classroom

February 4, 2020

My 8th grade capstone project introduced me to R. The project was a data visualization about breakfast tacos. I used R and other web based tools. My lightning talk will focus on my experience about using R for class projects and getting the support from my parents to help integrate R into the classroom. I will show how students can get started when they have no clue on how to use R. I will talk about the project’s toolkit which includes RStudio cloud, Google sheets, chomebook, measurement tools, my phone and how R is being used in my school.
