Past Data Fest Events

2018 -

Our first year saw 12 undergraduate students from Applied Mathematics, Statistics, but also Computer Science, Construction Management, Civil Engineering, and Biology. The diversity of backgrounds and experiences was amazing. Many students were buzzing afterwards about how much fun they had and how much they learned that weekend.

After two days of intense data wrangling, analysis, presentation design, interspersed with a lot of good free food and caffeine, each team presented their findings to a panel of judges consisting of both on and off campus professionals. Over $500 worth of prizes were awarded for the following categories:
