StatStart – A High School Summer Program in Biostatistics

StatStart is a summer course to teach programming in R and basic statistics to underserved minority high school students in the Boston area. Dr. Marcello Pagano, Professor of Biostatistics at the Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health, volunteered to act as the program’s supervisor. Receiving instruction for two hours a day, four days a week in classrooms at the Harvard Chan School for the month, these students have been given a rare start in subject areas that are usually closed off to them, potentially redrawing their learning curve and exciting them about pursuing higher education and a STEM career.
