About D4P

Everyone has a right to access primary scientific information and the opportunity to explore how science connects to our society.

Data for the People (D4P) is a web-series that invites all people to engage with relevant scientific research topics, presented by scientists from our communities. Information is sourced directly from primary scientific literature and explored in a way that maintains the rigor of the research while eliminating inaccessible jargon. 

Each D4P season is presented as a related collection of 3-5 online episodes connect through a common theme. Episodes can be viewed on YouTube, and discussion guides for each episode are available to download as a PDF or to Google Classroom. Each D4P season will culminate in a town hall-style event that demonstrates the ways in which a specific scientific theme can connect to our society.
