Competing in the CaYPT and IYPT was probably the most valuable experience I had in high school. I learned how to derive my own theoretical models, design and run original experiments, and present my findings in a PhD-style peer defense.

I cannot express my gratitude towards STEM Fellowship enough. Not only has the Big Data Challenge catapulted me into the world of data analytics and scientific research, but it has also introduced me to supportive mentors across industry and academia.

( Big Data Challenge Contestant 2016 )

Putting myself into roles of the reporter and the opposer pushed me to think of problems from different view points.
