We are on a mission to provide Data Analytics skills training to students, with a current focus on middle schoolers.
97% of U.S. children ages 12-17 play video games. Let kids be kids while setting them up to learn.
Teaching Common Core standards with a sports twist that helps students connect the dots.
90% of students we’ve worked with express that they feel more comfortable with data and problem solving.
We offer several engaging play-based workshops that were created in collaboration with teaching professionals and tied to Common Core standards for Mathematics. Almost all of the students who have gone through a workshop have expressed that they felt more confident working with data and solving problems. Contact us to learn more!
Our Probability workshop focuses on teaching students the principles of probability and expected value through the lens of shooting in basketball. Students will not only learn the basics and theory but will also gain practical experience making decisions using probability from various game-based activities and a fun deck-building card game.
In our Expressions & Equations workshop, students will learn the power of mathematical modeling by breaking down popular measures of basketball player productivity and working together to create their own models. Students will gain conceptual knowledge of dependent and independent variables and apply algebraic expressions in an engaging simulation game.
Many traditional learning games are frankly not very entertaining and are glorified quizzes that focus on drilling information and do not engage students. Our products focus more on entertainment and creating meaningful experiences while incorporating learning into game mechanics and strategy.
We believe that students will be more engaged when Data Analytics concepts are presented through the lens of something they intrinsically care about and when learning involves playing games, where they have more autonomy and allowed more creativity.
"I LOVED the workshop. I think it was engaging to students and easy for them to follow because in general they enjoy sports and they could relate to it!"
“I loved that the starting point was with real-life applications of data analysis. I also loved the role model that Chi provides for our students of someone who is using math professionally and has gone to a challenging university.”
"My favorite part of the workshop was making a graph in google sheets because we got to do what the pros [sports analysts] do.”
We’ve done the workshop with students in various grade levels within the Triangle. Workshop can be done as part of a STEM class or club, afterschool program or summer camp. Contact us for more information or to schedule a workshop!
