For the 2020/21 school year Istat and SIS organize the eleventh edition of the Italian Statistics Olympics.
The Olympics are aimed to make students familiar with statistical thinking, to arouse their interest towards data analysis and probability, to make them able to understand correctly the meaning of the quantitative information they get every day.
The initiative is intended for students of the upper secondary school (from first to fourth year).
