Students challenged to share Hudson River data
Now in its third year, the Hudson Data Jam Competition challenges students to creatively tell stories for a general audience using data from the Hudson River watershed. The Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies and Marist College sponsor the competition, which looks for creative ways to present data-based stories about the river and its watershed. Students will use at least one data set to create a graphic, rap song, sculptures, puppet shows, children’s book or other project.
Cash prizes of $500, $300, and $100 will be awarded to the top projects at both the middle school and high school levels. For more information, visit caryinstitute.org. Registrations and parental consent forms are due by May 6 and project submissions by May 27.
