CA Elections 2020 Expert Mentor Q&A Session
September 18 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The California Election 2020 Data Challenge is a month-long data science + civic engagement competition designed to leverage public data to help us understand this year’s ballot initiatives! Check out the official site for more information.
On September 16 and 18 from 3-5pm faculty, community, and subject matter experts have graciously volunteered their time to provide virtual consultations to support registered teams as they develop their projects. To participate, participants must register for the Q&A session no later than 10am the day of the session to receive the Zoom link.
We strongly encourage participants to attend these sessions. Mentors will offer registered teams general advice on approaching a project on the ballot initiative they have chosen. Mentors can offer participants insight into the ballot initiative content, history of the issue related to the ballot initiative in California or, more broadly, suggest sources of publicly available data and help define a research question.
