What is a VizAthon?

A VizAthon is a hackathon-style event where teams will work over a period of a few hours to a few days to create data visualizations, usually around a certain topic.

In this case, the topic is childhood obesity and related factors. At our event, you will learn from experts at the Friedman School and community partners to better understand how data visualizations can help community organizations work more effectively. You will hear from data science experts to learn visualizing techniques and new software skills.
