Learn. Hack. Repeat.

ASPIRE Alpha is a two-day data science hackathon for secondary school, JC, polytechnic, and university students.

Attend a series of workshops led by our instructors. Learn to analyse and visualise data using Python, and gain familiarity with statistical concepts. Listen to talks presented by working data science professionals, to learn about cutting-edge technology and give yourself a head start in the industry.

Form groups to compete in a day-long hackathon! Armed with skills from the first day, analyse large datasets to test hypotheses and draw insights about real societal issues. After presenting and receiving feedback from a panel of judges, you will also have the opportunity to network with representatives from our partner firms.

Hungry for more? ASPIRE Alpha is only the beginning of your foray into data science. Participate in our other events, meet other students who share your passion, and become a part of the Code Gakko community!
