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 Data Jam Network Facebook group page.
Support your students in their projects.
We encourage you to register early by February 5th 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 group for the competition.
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 Expo and the contest judging.
Registrations are due online by April 16, 2021.
Submit parental consent forms.
Please print out the consent forms and distribute them to each participating student. Email the signed parental/guardian consent forms to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than April 16, 2021.
All completed forms can either be scanned or photographed and e-mailed to email@example.com
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!
