Explore. Build. Win.
You are invited to participate in the second Waterloo Datathon this May 12, 2018.
Called the Data Open, the competition brings together the best minds in mathematics, engineering, science and technology to collaborate and compete using the world’s most important data sets.
Datathons are a new type of live-action competition for STEM students. They are like hackathons for software engineers and computer scientists, but instead of building apps contestants use real-world data to develop and substantiate solutions to a socially important problem.
If you are curious to see what a Datathon looks like watch this brief clip from a recent Datathon in Dublin or the read about the first Waterloo Datathon.
The 2018 Waterloo Datathon is hosted by Citadel LLC & Citadel Securities in partnership with Correlation One and Waterloo Mathematics. The event will take place on Saturday, May 12 from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at Mathematics 3, Room 1006 at the University of Waterloo.
- $25,000 in cash prizes
