ADSEI is super excited to be partnering with CSIRO and AeRO (Australian eResearch Organisations) to run some public events at the C3DIS Collaborative Conference on Computational and Data Intensive Science at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC).
FOR the general public we have a science panel event at 7:30 on Wednesday May 30th: Data Intensive Science: from Astronomy to Zoology Come and hear Scientists talk about the uses and abuses of data, and ask your questions about science, data, and everything! You can book tickets for only $5 per person.
For Year 10-12 Students there is a student day on May 30th from 10am until 2pm.
This is an outstanding opportunity for students to learn about cutting edge STEM research, hear talks from world class scientists, and to meet researchers using Computation to solve problems in areas as diverse as Biology, Climate Science, Astronomy, Marine Science, Bushfire Prevention and Management, and much, much more.
Teachers can bring students to this day for FREE, and student groups are welcome to enter the Visualisation Competition.
Students can work in teams to choose a real world dataset (such as the workforce equality dataset on data.gov.au), analyse it to answer an interesting question and visualise the results.
More information on the student day and optional visualisation competition can be found here.
FOR Teachers there is a workshop on integrating STEM into your classes using Data Science. For $250 you can see keynotes at the conference, attend a workshop where you will build classroom projects and lesson plans around CSIRO and other datasets, attend the Poster Session drinks and the Gala reception in the evening.
