ABOUT THE NORTH CAROLINA EDUCATION DATATHON
The goal of the NC Datathon is to leverage technology and data to develop innovative solutions for addressing complex problems. This event will bring together university and student-led teams from across North Carolina. Teams are challenged to solve an education-related problem by using multiple sources of data.
Teams will work to develop applications, dashboards, and/or solutions to the problem and then present their projects to a panel of expert judges and conference attendees who vote for the best team. The two-day event will include keynote speakers, team work time, presentations, judging, and awarding of winners.
