Census Bureau database demonstration - Thurs, Nov. 1

Thursday, Nov. 1 I have a statistician coming in from the Census Bureau to show my 370 Feature Writing students how to mine the depths of the bureau’s web site.

This will be a hands-on presentation with the classroom computers.

I have a few available seats – maybe 8 or so – for visiting students/faculty.

The session will begin about 5:30 p.m. Thursday, November 1 in Innovation Hall, room 328.

Please let me know at dkubiske@gmu.edu if you or your students are interested in attending.

Last year I had a Census guy in and his dog and pony show was spectacular. The students learned a whole lot more about how to get information for stories in that one hour than I could have told/showed them.
