The Curiosity Cup
A Global SAS® Student Competition
The Curiosity Cup brings student teams together from across the globe for a competition of real-world analytics skills. This is the ultimate group project that will test – and grow – your knowledge of data science and analytics.
Registration is open Dec. 1, 2023 - Jan. 31, 2024
I’m curious. Tell me more.
Teams of two to four students and a faculty advisor will choose an analytics topic that ignites their curiosity and use SAS software to learn from the data and answer big questions. Teams will submit papers during the first round and will describe their analysis in a video presentation during the second round. Industry experts judge entries based on data preparation, analysis and presentation, organization, use of visuals, and subject matter knowledge.
