100 of Michigan's top STEM students worked on a problem statement related to airbnb lodging data, and competed for $25,000 in cash prizes! Michigan students won the first and third prize in the competition. The Statistics Department had a particularly strong showing - including three members from the 1st place team and all members of the 3rd place team.
Congratulations to the winners and all participants!
