What is the Data Crunch Challenge?

Participants will be divided into groups and each group will be given a dataset to analyze, visualize and determine innovative ways the data can be used in other scenarios. The goal is to give people the opportunity to learn about data wrangling, how to use data analysis software and understand the importance of data and how it can be used towards real-world solutions.

Who is it for?

Everyone! Innovation happens best when people with diverse viewpoints and skill sets come together. This is your chance to bring your creativity and your unique skills and get involved!

Not just for techies

You don’t need to have a tech background to participate. Support will be available to help you. This event is a learning opportunity for people with and without tech backgrounds
