The Collaborative Conference on Computational and Data Intensive Science is running a student day for year 10-12 students on Wednesday May 30th.
This is an outstanding opportunity for students to learn about cutting edge STEM research, hear talks from world class scientists, and to meet researchers using Computation to solve problems in areas as diverse as Biology, Climate Science, Astronomy, Marine Science, Bushfire Prevention and Management, and much, much more.
Bring along a student group and enter the
STEM Data Visualisation Competition!
For the workforce equality dataset, an interesting question might be: which gender is more likely to work on a casual basis? Or What proportion of women work full time, versus the proportion of men who do?
Or in honour of Reconciliation week you could design a visualisation exploring overlap in different Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Languages using these datasets: https://data.gov.au/dataset/slq-aboriginal-languages-word-lists
Choose any dataset you find interesting.
Design a compelling and informative visualisation to display your results, print it out as a poster, and bring it to C3DIS to be judged by our panel of scientists.
There are great tech prizes available for your school!
