EduCaixa offers the teachers and students registered on the BigData Programme the oportunity to take part in the BigData Challenge, a competition in which teams can put the knowledge.
To win a prize, participants must take on the role of a data journalism team and prepare a news story on a proposed contemporary issue, also explaining the procedures they've used to manage, analyse and process the data.
The pre-registration for the BigData Challenge will be open until February 7, 2020.
The projects for the BigData Challenge can be presented through the "la Caixa" platform before March 3, 2020.
The Big Data Challenge offers the chance to benefit from two awards:
Barcelona Datathon: 4 days of learning by solving a specific challenge on the big data phenomenon and the social transformation that it entails. The Datató will be held from 3 to 6 May 2020 in Barcelona and the students and teachers of the 25 selected teams will participate.
Training trip to Silicon Valley (San Francisco, USA): the 5 selected teams from the Datató will travel to Silicon Valley where they will visit technology companies of global relevance, will know innovative initiatives and will develop different activities to deepen in the acquired knowledge.
