Cockburn Gazette - - NEAR YOU -

STU­DENTS from Se­ton Catholic Col­lege and Hamil­ton Se­nior High School re­ceived some valu­able ca­reer ad­vice at Scitech’s Big Data Crunch. More than 70 high school stu­dents from around the state were given the op­por­tu­nity to talk to pro­fes­sion­als from a range of sci­ence, tech­nol­ogy, en­gi­neer­ing and maths fields as part of the re­cent Big Data Week. Scitech chief ex­ec­u­tive Alan Brien said the week of events was to show how data an­a­lyt­ics could be ap­plied in busi­ness, town plan­ning, cli­mate change re­search and ed­u­ca­tion. “Big Data Crunch al­lowed stu­dents to ask data pro­fes­sion­als ques­tions about their cho­sen ca­reer paths,” he said. “By fol­low­ing a ca­reer in STEM, stu­dents will be set­ting them­selves up for an in­ter­est­ing and re­ward­ing ca­reers across many dif­fer­ent in­dus­tries.” STEM stands for Sci­ence, Tech­nol­ogy, En­gi­neer­ing and Math­e­mat­ics.

Stu­dents had the op­por­tu­nity to get ad­vice from pro­fes­sion­als in the data an­a­lyt­ics in­dus­try dur­ing Scitech’s re­cent Big Data Crunch week.
