HOW MANY SATURDAYS? is an amazing data app from Exploratorium that helps young people explore units of time.
Users enter their birthdate and the app shows how much time they’ve lived in hours, minutes, and seconds. It also provides fascinating data based on the time an individual has been alive such as the number of Friday the 13ths, lightning strikes, presidential elections, and hours watching television. For each item, the app provides an image, animation, video, or audio to accompany the data.
Librarians will find this data app to be a fun way to gather information for autobiographical infographics. Ask youth to think about how they would display different types of data.
