A Data Scientist at Sea

Description: 

This story spotlights EDC's Randy Kochevar, who, alongside a team from EDC's Ocean of Data Institute, created Ocean Tracks, a graphical interface that allow high school and undergraduate students to gather, interpret, and analyze biological data from marine animals. This interface and the student supports that accompany it are designed to bring to life the practices and questions of data-based scientific exploration.“If you only learn something in the abstract, then you can’t really know it,” says Kochevar.
