The American Statistical Association (ASA) DataFest™ is a celebration of data in which student teams work around the clock to find and share meaning in a large, rich, and complex dataset.
ASA DataFest™ at Penn State University is open to all Undergraduate and Master’s Degree students at Penn State University, as well as students from surrounding colleges and universities.
There is no fee to participate.
Students compete in teams of 3 to 5. You may form your own team prior to the event, or you may ask to be placed on a team. We encourage you to form teams of individuals from different disciplines because you will benefit from having team members of diverse backgrounds and skills. Final projects are limited to a maximum of 3 slides, so make your content count!
Mentors will be available throughout the weekend to help you as you work through the data. Make sure to follow us on Twitter using @PSUDatafest to stay informed on the latest updates and for the chance to win prizes!
