The "Budding Data Scientists Hackathon" was a pilot program to bring data science into a high school's curriculum in Singapore. Unlike typical hackathons, this hackathon lasted for a few months. A total of seven teams comprising 22 students underwent one week of intensive training workshops and five months of mentoring to work on projects tackling social challenges using data science. The hackathon was made possible with the support of the KDD Impact Program .
