Digital Science are proud to be a Bronze Sponsor for the STEM Partnership 2020-2021 National High School Big Data Challenge.  In particular, we are delighted to be able to support the Digital Science International Excellence In Analytics Award  and will be part of the judging process on Sunday 28 February 2021.  We will also be taking part in a panel discussion on the same day, when Dr Suze Kundu, Head of Public Engagement at Digital Science,  discusses “How Open Data and Open Science can be used to address inequity in education”

The Big Data Challenge (BDC) for high school students is an inquiry-based, interdisciplinary, experiential learning program that strengthens students’ problem-solving and critical thinking abilities by working with Open Data. By allowing students to undertake independent research projects that tackle real-world problems, the BDC synergizes with both classroom and extracurricular experiences to foster an active digital citizenship position and prompt new sustainable development innovative ideas.
