Numerical Method (NM) High School Data Science Competition (NM HS DSC), is a new data science competition for grades 9 to 12 students brought to you as a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) project by NM, a leader in the data science industry. It enables you to compete with top students in data science and machine learning in the world. This is your chance to work on real-life data science problems, improve your skillset, learn from expert data science and machine learning professionals, and score your way to the top of the Data Science leaderboard!
Most high school students will not be able to code at a level practiced in the data science field. Thus, the goal of organizing this competition for students is to inform students of data science as a field and get them interested in it to create an infrastructure that will prompt students to enter data science, carrying the industry forward.
Questions of this competition, data sets, and judging will be prepared by NM. This will ensure that the material is relevant to data science. NM will also create, maintain, and improve Data Science training materials based on the formative and summative performance reports from SIMCC.
We hope to create a platform that can allow the neighborhood schools’ students to have an opportunity to learn about informatics in a more creative way and compete with the rest of the world. Using Computation thinking also allows the students to have a systematic approach to learn programming and our methodology of combining design thinking and robotics will provide an intuitive first introduction to programming, as well as infinite opportunities for gradually building more advanced projects using an electronics platform fulfilling a standard loved and tested by millions of people who use electronics for real-world applicable projects across the globe.

FREE Mock Tests If you Sign up before March 1, 2022
Sign up for NM HS DSC before March 1, 2022, and all contestants will get Mock Tests free for their grade level. These will cost 50$ after that.
The contest fees paid by students to Competitive Kids STEM for hosting competitions are non-refundable. To be allowed to host these contests, our organization pays a fee to the various external organizations that own these competitions. It is a significant amount of time and resource investment, not to mention the various charges paid for processing these payments to the external organizations, various third parties and financial institutions.
As a nonprofit organization, CKSTEM operates in a very lean manner and limited resources to keep our operating costs low in order to make our offerings available at a much lower cost to the students. Hence, we will not be able to offer any refund for contest fees to students for withdrawals or cancellations beyond our control.
If any student has been wrongly charged by CKSTEM, or we cancel an event due to reasons under our control and there are refunds provided to us from the external organizations, we will happily refund the fees paid by the students (deducting the processing charges).
