Last year, nearly 100 students participated in the 2013 DataFest at UCLA, and many other took part at Duke University. This year, DataFest is coming to the Pioneer Valley in the form of the Five College DataFest, to be hosted at UMass-Amherst. Undergraduates from throughout the Five Colleges (Amherst, Hampshire, Mount Holyoke, Smith and UMass) will have the opportunity to compete in teams of up to five students, to address a real-world problem supported by an interesting data set.
The Five College DataFest will take place over the weekend of March 29th at UMass.
Will you rise to the challenge of making sense of the data?
