September 29 - September 30
Carolina Data Challenge
Carolina Data Challenge is a data science oriented hackathon at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. This event is co-hosted by the student organization, Carolina Analytics & Data Science, the UNC Computer Science Department, the Odum Institute, and the National Consortium for Data Science.
Participants will have the opportunity to hack on a dataset from either the financial, technology or non-profit sector. At the end of the event, sponsors will present awards based on presentation materials such as visualizations, predictive models, valuable insights, etc.
The event is completely free, and meals are included! However, transportation is not available to the event this year, so participants must make their own travel arrangements.
Any registered students with a valid school ID may participate in the event, though high school students are not allowed. We want this event to be accessible to data scientists of all skill levels! We plan on having sponsors and mentors hold workshops that will provide hands-on experience with data science concepts such as dataset cleaning, model building, and visualization.
