This article describes a hands-on activity that has been used with students aged 12–18 years to promote the study of Statistics. We believe there is evidence to suggestan increase in student enthusiasm for Statistics at school, within the Mathematicscurriculum, but also within other subjects such as Geography. We also believe thatthe use of such activities has resulted in some students giving more serious thoughtto studying Statistics at University. The activity described here is supported with aweb-based application to allow younger or less experienced students to engage withthe material.
