SciBraai and Code for South Africa Data Quest
Are you a journalist, a designer, a young scientist, an analyst or a developer? Are you just nuts about data and the great things that can be done with it? We’d love for you to participate in SciBraai’s first Data Quest!
On 22 August, scibraai.co.za, Code4SA and the International Centre for Journalists (ICFJ) will host a science journalism DataQuest at Codebridge civic tech lab in Cape Town. Participants will team up (max 3 per team) to find stories in data and then prepare a multimedia article in one of three categories: health, environment or general research. Think of it like a hackathon for great science stories.
Stories will be judged by a panel of experienced data and science journalists, and the winning stories and visualisations will benefit from professional editing and proofing before being published on SciBraai.co.za and Code4SA.org, as well as being offered for publication by other media houses.
There will of course be a braai going on the day, with food, drinks and prizes available to all participants.
