Whether your students focus on historical trends, scientific poetry, or creative mathematical visualizations, we want to support you and your students throughout this competition!
Familiarize yourself with the resources provided here.
Attend a workshop or webinar (optional!)
Webinar opportunities will be announced on the Hudson Data Jam Facebook group page.
Support your students in their projects.
We encourage you to register early by Friday, November 12th, 2021 and schedule a classroom visit with Cary educators, and to email us if you have any questions about the data or your projects.
Register your student(s)for the competition by Tuesday, February 22, 2022.
Don’t worry if you don’t know how many teams of students you’ll have or what they’ll be studying yet. Registering tells us that you’re planning to get involved and gives us a chance to help your teams out. This also helps us plan the Awards Ceremony & Celebration and the contest judging.
Submit parental consent forms.
Submit signed parental consent forms to your unique Google Drive folder no later than the registration deadline, February 22, 2022.
These worksheets and lessons may help students work through understanding Data Jam, choosing an appropriate dataset level, getting to know their datasets, and graphing their data.
Don't hesitate to reach out (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions that you or your students have about the competition or the individual datasets. Since most of the data were collected by Cary scientists, we can forward your questions to the appropriate person to get your students the most helpful answers about the science!
