As part of our goal of teaching the world about statistics and data science, we have aquired way-too-realistic puppets made up to look like the co-directors of the data science lab. Visiting the puppets is now a key part of visiting Johns Hopkins Biostatistics/the JHUDSL.

While at Hopkins we made sure to do some serious statistics: @LucyStats plays with puppet @rdpeng pic.twitter.com/hUePyPzwIA

I thought I came to Hopkins to film a Christmas special w/ @LeekPuppet @puppetpeng @TenuredBCaffo but they just wanted a seminar ¯_(ツ)_/¯ pic.twitter.com/Ke8CI1jFJg

They also have their own Twitter accounts (which, hilariously enough we didn’t create) LeekPuppet and PengPuppet and their own Youtube channel.

Stay tuned for much more from the puppets.
