Welcome to the 2022 AusDM Student Showcase. This years youth showcase is focusing on using data to better understand our climate. Everyone knows and understands the weather to some extent, so we thought why not get you to use weather data to explain what is happening with our climate.

The Australian Data Mining conference is celebrating its 20th conference. Looking forward to the next 20 years, we would like to inspire the youth to make a single page report that can displayed at the conference. All suitable entries will be displayed and will receive a participation certificate. Entries are open to all students in primary school, high school, or university. Entries need to have at least one chart or graph, and a table, and a short description of what the data tells you. Plus if you’re still at school, permission from your parents or teachers.

You can put in an entry by yourself, or with a group of friends. Please let us know by email if you intend to sends us an entry, as soon as you decide you want to be in the showcase. Final entries need to be a PDF file and emailed.

Our email is mavisnolan1927@gmail.com

Your task is to look at the dataset we have provided, and to look at the data, and tell us what you think the data says to you. In the data set you will see there are a number of different variables. We would like you to choose one and write about it, and to make a graph to help you explain it. As you explanation it, we would like to see how this data is useful in life. This could be in playing sports or doing a hobby, having fun with friends, travelling somewhere, or even what happens at school. The weather has an effect on almost everything we do.

You can cut and paste the data table below.  The dataset is 50 days of data. You can chose any part of the dataset to use in your entry.
