The new CensusAtSchool website is up and running.

CensusAtSchool is an international post-primary school census, where students can gather and analyse their data from a range of interesting topics. Students can complete an online questionnaire and analyse their own class results. Teachers and students can record, access, share and analyse their own data quickly and easily. When teaching Statistics nothing beats real data!
Have a look at the short video below to learn more.
