At this workshop, Angelica broke down the myth that research and data are inaccessible and boring, and instead experience the thrill of telling a story by embracing data as a powerful tool for social justice. In this workshop, participants learned what researchers actually do including how to create a research question, how to form hypotheses, how to test hypotheses in a systematic way, and how to visually communicate your findings to inform others. Participants used a “choose your own adventure” model to design their own study and then translated their findings into dynamic infographics using Canva. This workshop was digital and included a data visualization lesson led by Girls Write Now Fellow Tatiana Mena Ramos.
