A Kaggle (like) competition is a competition for data scientists in which a problem is placed before teams of competitors based on a large dataset. The intent of the competition is to allow competitors, in our case, high school students, to ‘get their hands dirty’ by performing in-depth analysis of the data in-order-to come up with the best recommendation to address the problem. The recommendations of the teams will be expressed both orally and visually to the judges to determine the winner. The intent of this competition is to give high school students from the region their first exposure to what it means to be a data scientist.
