Hackathon - Style Challenge
On Day 2, students will gather in teams of up to five to analyze data obtained from data.gov.sg, and create a presentation. Participants will be provided a default set of CSV-formatted datasets spanning a range of topics, from birth rate to PSI readings.
Students will be tasked with visualizing analyzing the data provided. Effective presentations will draw relationships among data, and communicate findings clearly.
For the presentation, teams must create a PowerPoint deck to showcase their findings from the datasets. Each team is given 4 minutes to conduct a presentation in front of a panel of judges.
