K-11 students are using R programming language in order to present data in an artistic and innovative way. Data to be analysed are: 1) Light data from sky photographs taken by our students using online telescope in Arizona. Stars with exoplanet are studied using models of transit orbits in order to obtain exoplanet data. 2) Athmospheric pollution data from the Government of Catalonia in order to compare statistically data of different locations, forecast pollution and present data in an interactive way. 3) Molecular docking data of drugs in order to discover new products of pharmaceutical interest. We would like to express our deep gratitude for your generous support of the Erasmus+ project and the Center for Astrophysics of University of Harvard.
