The Paul Allen Computing Challenge (PACC) is a data challenge created by the partnership of the PSCSTA and theLiving Computer Museum.
This years challenge is Data in Action! We will encourage you to think about data science from a sports perspective. How could access to sports and fitness data and knowledge of data analysis techniques help your favorite team have a better season? Are there drawbacks to collecting personal data about players?
Find an adult mentor from your school or community to support you as needed (required)
Form teams of 2 or 3 high school students (we are geared to support high school students, but younger passionate students are welcome to participate as well)
Registration is now closed. Check back next year if you are interested in participating.
Use a data analysis tool of your choice (e.g., Excel) to complete the Part I tasks
