HIGH SCHOOL BIG DATA CHALLENGE 2017-2018 MENTOR APPLICATION

STEM Fellowship is now accepting mentor applications for the High School Big Data Challenge (BDC) for the 2017-2018 year!

WHAT IS THE HIGH SCHOOL BIG DATA CHALLENGE?

Now in its fourth year, the STEM Fellowship Big Data Challenge is a competition that helps high school students get excited about Data Science and its potential to support inquiry-based learning and problem solving.

The STEM Fellowship Big Data Challenge enables a “data-native” generation of students to discover their analytical and inquiry potential while learning data science fundamentals and developing skill sets required to be 21st century investigators, scientists, innovators and change makers.

It changes ways of thinking and often leads to new queries that had not yet been realized.

The challenge allows top teams of students the much sought-after opportunity to present their ideas to industry and academic experts, as well as publish their results in a scholarly journal while learning 21st century skills.
