STEM Data Visualisation Competition for Year 10-12 Students

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!

Students can work in teams to choose a real world dataset (such as the workforce equality dataset on, analyse it to answer an interesting question and visualise the results.

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:

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!

Date: Wednesday 30 May 2018

Time: 10:00am – 2:00pm

Venue: Level 1,
Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre

Lunch: Students should bring a packed lunch as no catering will be provided at the venue.
