The LTER network is a significant contributor to the myriad of publicly available datasets and leading a transformation of research in the environmental sciences. Yet, teachers and students continue to have limited access to authentic data experiences and have significant challenges making sense of data using spreadsheet-based graphing tools. By sharing user-friendly tools, we provide a means to engage students in the process of exploring, analyzing, and summarizing long-term ecosystem data. With the Data Jam model, students then creatively communicate their discoveries to non-scientific audiences. This workshop will introduce participants to two analysis tools that make the practice of data interpretation more accessible to students.
