Invited Paper Session 
Metro Toronto Convention Centre 
Over the past 3 years, data has been collected on high and middle school students that participate in GATO365 Data Science Academy, an educational curriculum development company founded by Immanuel Williams. The GATO365 curriculum is designed to adjust based on students' abilities and questions, incorporating Dr. Williams' research on culturally relevant data, extraction, transformation, visualization of data and the implementation of a deeper knowledge of APIs in the data science classroom. This data-driven approach will help instructors and curriculum developers determine what material should be taught in middle school, high school, and college to optimize data science education. This presentation will discuss the adaptive curriculum and assessments used to navigate and enhance data science education for students at various levels.
