Barcelona Dades Obertes Challenge First edition_2018
Six educational centers took part in the first (and pilot) edition of the Challenge. Participating teaching staff received training in open data, tools for data analysis and graphic resources. Students subsequently applied this knowledge to carry out different projects based on the analysis of the data published on the Open Data BCN website. Students presented their final proposals as infographics.
The Fàbrica de Creació de Fabra i Coats hosted the awards of the Barcelona Dades Obertes Challenge with more than 300 assistants among young students, teachers and staff from other institutions and entities related to the data.
Students explained their projects at the assembly hall’s stage and also exhibited the infographics in an enabled space where they also answered questions raised by the public and jury.
The ceremony was chaired by the Commissioner for Technology and Digital Innovation, Francesca Bria, with the presence of Màrius Boada i Pla, Director of the Municipal Data Office. The jury comprised of several university teachers and data analysis experts (Meet the jury).
