There will be eight clues total. There may or may not be prizes, which may or may not be really cool.
The hunt will run from 8am Tuesday May 3rd to 8pm. Nothing will be there if you try to do the hunt before or after those time, though you're welcome to ponder the first clue before then.
Some rules and guidelines:
1. Please leave the clues where you find them. This is really important.
2. Collaboration is encouraged, but please don't cheat.
3. Don't interrupt people who are using spaces for other things.
4. Take care of yourself! You'll be outdoors and walking a lot, so you should probably have water, good shoes, maybe snacks or sunblock -- and you definitely need some way to record clues.
The first clue will be in your mailbox. If you need a braille first clue, or have other accessibility questions, email email@example.com. If a clue is missing, email firstname.lastname@example.org. For hints, email
Come and celebrate the accomplishments of Division III students as they present their thesis work on themed panels throughout the day. Breakfast and lunch will be served. Come for all the panels or stay for a few.
It is common knowledge that technical skills related to the acquisition, shaping, analysis and storage of data command a premium in today's marketplace. It is also true that such skills inform the fundamental mission of the liberal arts: the separation of signal from noise in the
context of what it means to live a meaningful life. I will provide examples of how data science and its associated skill sets are empowering students to pursue their interests in the humanities,
the social sciences and natural sciences. These examples share a common feature: they all involve centering education in the completion of well-designed, large scale projects.
