STEM Fellowship High School Big Data Challenge 2017-2018 Mentor Application
The STEM Fellowship Big Data Challenge ( is a 3-month long compeititon aimed at spreading data science education to high school students. This year, participants were invited to investigate national datasets to propose solutions to meet the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Throughout the months of October to January, participants will choose and analyze datasets, record their findings in a brief paper, and if selected as a finalist, will pitch their analysis to a panel of judges at SAS Toronto headquarters.

As mentors you will be guiding our students as they go through their data science project.

Although teams varies, a commitment of 2 hours per week is recommended. That said, if an email describing detailed next steps would suffice, then that's perfect. If the team needs an hour-long collaborative coding session then we trust your judgement. At the end of the day your role is to serve as a guiding hand and to use your expertise to polish their analysis.

In addition to mentorship, the STEM Fellowship will expose students to weekly data science workshops (five in total). We will review workshop answers and you are not expected to help with the workshops. This will equipt the students with core data science skills and offload commitment on the mentors.

Mentors are absolutely vital to the success of our competition so we want to thank you for your interest. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact
