National Science Experiment Big Data Challenge 2017
Launched in 2015, the National Science Experiment (NSE) is a large-scale experiment involving students to explore ubiquitous sensing using the SENSg device and understand how vital environmental and lifestyle information can be derived using big data technologies. Participating schools from NSE 2015 or NSE 2016 were invited to take part in the first NSE Big Data Challenge last year and come up with innovative insights and applications based on the ready data collected during the NSE trial period.
This year, students will experience the full process of design of experiment – crafting a research question and formulating a hypothesis, collecting and analysing the data, and presenting their findings using appropriate data visualisation tools. Springfield Secondary School was one of the 5 finalists from this year’s Big Data Challenge and presented their research to a panel of judges on 13th Sept’ 17 at Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD). The team consisted of students from Secondary 2 Excellence – Jordan Ng, Zulfarhan, Sofiah Insyirah and Nurfarhana, and they gave their best.
