Working on something else and came across this free program for Yrs 5-12 from the Australian Bureau
of Statistics http://www.abs.gov.au/websitedbs/cashome.nsf/Home/Home
Registration is now open for 2010.
"The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) is proud to present Australian teachers and students with
CensusAtSchool, an international education project. CensusAtSchool is an innovative student centred
learning experience that provides students with access to real, raw data about themselves. The
increasing availability of information has changed how Australians live and work - CensusAtSchool
provides a fun and stimulating learning environment for students to interpret and critically
evaluate data and information. The project aims to improve statistical literacy by helping students
understand the world around them and assist them in making sensible, informed decisions.
CensusAtSchool is a FREE data collection and analysis project aimed at students from years 5 to 12,
and is provided as an educational resource only."
