The Devils 4 Devils Support Circle is a peer-led, peer-based, online platform for students to support and connect with each other while taking online classes and practicing social distancing. Through Zoom, students will meet to describe their experiences with digital learning and remote relationships, learn how other students are responding to these changes and receive understanding, helpful information and suggestions.

Society of Women Engineers at ASU members

Members of the Society of Women Engineers at ASU.

The Society of Women Engineers at ASU is trying to start an online tutoring initiative to help students during all of the school closures.

SWE will have four different programs you can help with.

  1. Making short videos with an activity or an experiment for kids to follow along with at home.
  2. A curated list of resources for parents to utilize during the shutdown (this one is more behind the scenes if this is something you enjoy).
  3.  A virtual tutoring program where we tutor students virtually.
  4. A buddy system to increase social interaction for kids during this time because they are experiencing isolation as well.

SWE created an entirely new Slack workspace for the entire initiative because we have students from other schools, other SWE sections and other Fulton Student Organizations joining this program!

DataFest 2020

Download the flyer.

DataFest is a nationally-coordinated undergraduate competition in which teams of two to five students work over a weekend to extract insight from a rich and complex data set.

Previous years’ data sets have included crime data from the Los Angeles Police Department, dating data from eHarmony, energy use data from GridPoint, and sales data from Ticketmaster. This year’s data set will be revealed at the opening of the event on Friday evening. At the conclusion of the competition, each team will have five minutes to make a presentation to our panel of judges. In addition to a Best in Show award, we will give awards such as Best Visualization and Best Use of External Data.

This is a great way to gain experience working with data. Past participants of DataFest have gone to job interviews able to describe technical challenges overcome, explain how they work under time-pressure, and talk about their thoughts on solving real-life data problems.
