British Science Week School Twitter Datasets

  • Jennifer Ann Holden (Creator)



    During British Science Week 2015, 4 Aberdeen City and Shire schools were visited and 7 workshops took place. As part of this work searches were conducted of twitter of names of schools, the tweets copied and analysed using WordItOut ( to create wordclouds that were used in presentations and as discussion starters. Tweets from up to 1 year old (1 March 2014 - 15 March 2015) were collected to make the wordclouds and common linking words and abbreviations were removed when creating the wordclouds. Each school had its own wordcloud and therefore its own search terms.
