Register now for the second annual Hudson Data Jam!
NEW THIS YEAR: Travel scholarships for attending the Expo!!
The Hudson Data Jam Competition is a STEAM program that challenges middle and high school students (grades 6-12) to present the most creative and compelling data-based story using Hudson River watershed data. This competition also provides a unique way to meet Common Core standards. Participating students will gain a better understanding of statistics, probability, and interpretation of data.
The registration deadline to reserve a place in the competition is May 4, 2015. Students have until June 1, 2015 to submit their final projects.
The Cary Institute has provided real scientific data from the Hudson River watershed on the Data Jam website. Now it’s up to students to interpret these data and use their creativity to present their findings for a nonscientist audience – through a story, puppet show, song, movie, or other creation – imagination is the limit! Projects will be judged electronically by a panel of scientists, artists, and educators, with cash prizes (up to $500) awarded to the top middle- and high-school projects. Winners will be announced at the Hudson Data Jam Expo, to be held at Marist College on June 13th.
We hope you will join us in spreading the word about this exciting new competition. Please share this information with middle- and high-school students, teachers, club advisors, and administrators who may be interested in participating.

Thank you! We can’t wait to see what your students create!
