The Stanford Open Data Project is looking for Mentors for their Datathon

The Stanford Open Datathon is an event where teams of students will compete in four tracks — Policy and Advocacy, Data Journalism, Data Analysis, and Build Your Own Open Data Portal — to analyze and draw compelling conclusions from data.  

 Mentors will either help participants by hosting an “office hour” or will score a small set of final project reports, or both. 

The time comitment can be as little as an hour or as much as you are willing to volunteer. The judging will take one hour of time between 12 p.m. and 3 p.m. on Sunday April 11 and take approximately one hour. Office hours will be held throughout the event itself (Friday evening to Sunday noon). 

If you are interested in supporting the next generation of data scientists, journalists, and advocates,  sign up here.
