Congratulations and thank you to all who participated in DataFest 2021 @ Vassar! Thank you to the students for your enthusiasm and perseverance that resulted in some insightful presentations, volunteer consultants & judges for your time and expertise, the Vassar President’s Office for sponsoring this year’s prizes, and other departments and offices from Vassar, Marist, and New Paltz for your support.
After our opening ceremony, the data have been revealed and our teams are off on their sprint to find connections and make predictions!
Teams will work until noon on Sunday and submit their analyses for judging in three categories:
– best insight
– best visualization
– best use of external data
We’re excited to see what they can accomplish!
DataFest 2021 @ Vassar is happening this weekend! Join us on Zoom this Friday, April 16 at 5PM for the Opening Ceremony, where we’ll introduce our teams and reveal this year’s data. Registered participants and volunteers for DataFest 2021 @ Vassar will receive a Zoom link in their emails this week.

Congratulations and thank you to all who participated in DataFest 2020 @ Vassar: COVID-19 Virtual Data Challenge! In these challenging times, we especially appreciate (and commend!) everyone for their enthusiasm and collaborative spirit. Thank you to the students for submitting projects, volunteer consultants & judges for their time and expertise, the Vassar President’s Office for sponsoring this year’s prizes, and other departments and offices from Vassar and Marist for their support.
This weekend would have been our DataFest 2020 @ Vassar! Although we will miss this live event with you all, we are pleased to announce the ASA DataFest: COVID-19 Virtual Data Challenge that will take place over a two-week period: May 20 – June 3, 2020. While this virtual DataFest will still include some key aspects of our usual live DataFests (e.g. working in teams, data-centered fun and exploration, workshops, volunteer consultants, panel of judges, prizes), there are also some important differences (notably, no dataset provided- you find your own, so no need for secrecy either!)
Read more about this year’s challenge on our COVID-19 Virtual Data Challenge page. The registration deadline is May 1, 2020.
As of yet, planning continues for DataFest 2020 @ Vassar. However we continue to monitor the coronavirus situation, especially on campus, and if need be, may modify DataFest 2020 into more of a virtual experience. We will keep all registered participants notified with updates.
