What is DataFace?

DataFace equips teachers and students with the skills and confidence to interrogate data – big and small – and present their findings creatively. It draws on core data skills, broader power skills and data visualisation techniques to encourage students to find the stories they care about through the gathering and presentation of data.

Working with four core datasets focused on environmental responsibility, gender equality and the cost-of-living crisis along with a range of short teaching videos, students develop their skills and produce a creative visual outcome.

Schools deliver the project and hold an in-school data visualisation project. The winning group from each school then participate in an exhibition and competition at Cheltenham Science Festival.

DataFace is about resilience, thinking skills, metacognition - the skills our young people need for the real world.


DataFace is a really good way for us to find different ways to interpret and manipulate data and display it in creative and fun ways.
