At a time when data and its application are considered fundamental to most industries, Vizkidz offers young people a head start by introducing the core concepts of data visualization through characters such as Penelope Pie, Laney Line, Barnaby Barchart, and Bertie Boxplot. Join author Liv Buli, a data journalist, to explore the wonderful world of Vizkidz and learn about the basic concepts of data visualization.

She’ll read from her book Penelope Pie Throws a Pizza Party, the first book in the Vizkidz series. She’ll also guide kids in hands-on activities that explore works of art and collections from the Harvard Art Museums.

This event will take place in Deknatel Hall, Lower Level.

Cost: Free with museums admission. Children and families of all ages are encouraged to attend.

Support for this program is provided in part by the Christopher P. Kaneb Fund.
