Dr. Frankenstein mashed up body parts. Modern researchers mash up data.
On Halloween (Thursday, Oct. 31) the Center for Science and Social Science Information (CSSSI) will present “Monster Mashup: Night of the Living Data” at 11:30 a.m., in the CSSSI StatLab Classroom.
During the hour-long workshop, presenters will show participants where to dig for the best data. Presentations will include:
- Comparing demographic and natural habitat variables to sasquatch sightings, with Stacey Maples, geographic information systems specialist
- Refining witch trial information, with Michelle Hudson, data librarian
- Collecting your own hauntings data, with Kristin Bogdan, data librarian
- Correlating UFO sightings with power outages, with Kayleigh Bohemier, science research support librarian
The organizers predict: It will be a graveyard smash.
(And, yes, there will be candy.)
