The ORCA Data Jam is a unique competition that challenges entrants to look at real science datasets collected by ORCA citizen scientists and come up with a creative and artistic way to display and share their findings with others.
Participants will choose a dataset of interest and then graph, analyze, and creatively interpret their results in a compelling and unique way. Students (grades upper elementary, middle and high school) and adults will stretch their imaginations to create a graphic, story, play, painting, song, dance, sculpture, etc., being sure to accurately summarize and portray the trends from the data. Data Jammers can compete individually or in small teams (2-8 members) for the opportunity to win great prizes. Imagination is the only limiting factor in this competition where art meets science!
