A Data Science competition is a contest in which a problem is placed before competitors based on a large data set (something fun that the students will be familiar with). The intent of the competition is 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. Data Science is a rapidly growing professional field in the Health IT industry as well as many other industries.
