STATWARS® Twilight Sessions

September 30 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

What is STATWARS® ?

The STATWARS® vision is to provide a classroom project that delivers meaningful and engaging mathematics, numeracy and data literacy to pupils, by bringing the enchantment of the entertainment industry to their doorstep.

STATWARS® allows pupils to make rich cross curricular connections between mathematics, the world of work and their own learning, as they work through a topic that is meaningful, relevant and contemporary. Pupils work in teams to analyse a large dataset of TV shows and films to produce an infographic poster, an advertisement poster and a 60-sec pitch.

How the competition works

STATWARS is a free competition, which includes a whole wealth of teacher resources, including a Scheme of Work, lesson plans and classroom presentations. Teachers will run the programme with their students between September 2019 and January 2020. Entries are submitted to the STATWARS® team for judging, and awards are presented to the winners at Datafest 2020.

More information can be found on the website, as it develops!

What you will achieve

Online STATWARS® awareness sessions will be held at 4pm on 28th August, 12th and 25th September 2019. In these sessions we will give an overview of the programme and how it works. You will be shown how to get the best out of the resources provided and be given the opportunity to ask any questions you may have. These sessions are open to anyone, but are primarily directed at Teachers interested in running the programme, or data professionals interested in supporting the programme.

Details of how to access the session will be sent out to attendees in advance of the event.
