# Description


Data science is a broad term for implementing a variety of methods to find connections between data to gain insightful knowledge about a particular issue. Data Analytics is an even more focused way of sorting through collected data to make predictions.

Participants conduct research on an annual theme or topic, document their research in a supporting portfolio, and create a display. Semifinalist teams participate in a timed, on-site challenge in which they must review specific data sets, provide insights, make predictions, and present their findings.
