The Big Data Programme: through the EduCaixa data, we contribute to developing pupils' digital skills and promote a proactive, critical but also realistic attitude towards technologies based on the study and analysis of the Big Data phenomenon.

The programme presents all participants with the Big Data Challenge, a competition to select the teams with the best projects, offering them the chance to take part in a Datathon in Barcelona and a training trip to Silicon Valley.

    The programme's content is presented on the website bigdata.educaixa.com, with five themed blocks that include practical, dynamic activities for the classroom.

    Teachers can choose from 3 itineraries of different intensities to adapt the programme to their needs.


    The Big Data programme is aimed at pupils in the 3rd and 4th year of Obligatory Secondary Education (ESO), the Baccalaureate, Middle Grade Training Cycles, Basic Professional Training and also Training and Insertion programmes.


    EduCaixa offers the teachers and pupils registered on the Big Data Programme the chance to take part in the Big Data Challenge, a competition in which teams can put the knowledge they've learned to the test.

    To win a prize, participants must take on the role of a data journalism team and prepare a news story on a proposed contemporary issue, also explaining the procedures they've used to manage, analyse and process the data.

    Projects can be presented from 15 November to 7 March.

    The Big Data Challenge offers the chance to benefit from two prizes:

    • Barcelona Datathon: 3 days of learning by resolving a specific challenge related to the Big Data phenomenon and associated transformation of society. The competition will be held on 6-8 May in Barcelona and the pupils and teachers from the 16 most successful teams will take part.

    • Training trip to Silicon Valley (San Francisco, USA): 2 teams selected from the Datathon will travel to Silicon Valley, when they'll visit state of the art technology firms and get to know, first-hand, the huge potential of Big Data.
