DataFest @ NC State
April 8, 2022 - April 10, 2022
DataFest is coming to NC State!
The Data Science Academy (DSA) is excited to host a weekend-long competition in which teams of students work to find insights from a large, complex dataset. NC State is an official host site for the American Statistical Association (ASA) DataFest.
Students from all disciplines can participate and get authentic experience working with big data. DataFest is open to undergraduate and master’s students. Ph.D. students are encouraged to volunteer as mentors during the event.
For questions about DataFest @ NC State, please contact Chanel Carrell.
This undergraduate (and master’s!) competition collaborates with a secret “data donor” to provide teams of undergraduates with a rich and complex real-world data problem. Teams have just 48 hours to put together a five-minute presentation for the judges, and can win prizes for Best Insight, Best Visualization and Best Use of External Data.
