DATA Challenges

The DATA Club aims to provide members with an opportunity to put their skills to the test in real-world situations. Broadly speaking, we have seen that encouraging students to apply their skills in a competitive setting creates fruitful learning opportunities to learn and develop.

 

We are super excited to announce that we’re launching a new 2021 Spring Data Competition: Vaccine Data Challenge💉!! Participants will be challenged to visualize aspects of vaccine distribution: where hotspots and distribution centers are located, distribution policies, and how vaccine distribution can be improved.

Undergraduate and graduate winners can win up to $300 dollars in prize money! 💵💸
🏆 1st place – $300, 🏆 2nd place -$200, 🏆 3rd place – $100

We partnered with the City of Boston, who provided students with bike traffic and incident datasets and challenged students to create a visualization in Tableau to provide key insights regarding bike safety in Boston and suggest policies to make Boston more bike-friendly. The top 5 teams presented their projects at the DATA Forum (co-hosted with Northeastern’s DATA Initiative), which was attended by companies from around the Boston area to in a gathering featuring speaker presentations, panels, and the final judging of the competition
