ashley juavinettDoes anyone have strong negative feelings about DataQuest.io before I invite students to try it out?
(I've been looking for options other than DataCamp, where students don't have to subscribe for a free month & then unsubscribe, e.g. CodeAcademy).

Background Peer reviewed research is paramount to the advancement of science. Ideally, the peer review process is an unbiased, fair assessment of the scientific merit and credibility of a study; however, well-documented biases arise in all methods...
By the time Christian Cazares was applying to grad school, he had participated in at least three diversity initiatives aimed at supporting underrepresented students in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math).
