Data Analysis

Project Overview:

Data is EVERYWHERE!  You may think of data as just numbers, but it includes facts and statistics that are collected together for analysis.  You will look at current Lesher data to put into charts and graphs.  These charts and graphs will then be formatted into a poster using the online website Piktochart. The Lesher website will also be utilized to gather fun facts and history of Lesher Middle School.  In the end, you will have a great Lesher infographic!
