For our Back to School contest this year, we had so many amazing entries, showcasing creativity, design expertise, excellent use of Power BI, and of course a genuine love for education! Before we get to the winners, I want to take a moment to introduce our judges.
Because this was a Back to School contest, we could not have picked the winners without the help of two educators:
James Burke | Middle School STEM Teacher
Nicole Lange | Former High School Biology Teacher
Additionally, entries were evaluated by several members of the Power BI Product Team, including Rien Hu, June Punkasem, Kim Manis, Amanda Cofsky, Tessa Hurr, and Miguel Martinez.
Our first place winner is Periodic Table of the Elements by David Eldersveld.
- We loved how useful this lesson is; it’s a perfect supplement for any high school chemistry course.
- Also, the author showcased superb use of Power BI features, such as report page tooltips, bookmarks, dynamic conditional formatting and dynamic measures.
If you are interested in learning how exactly the lesson was made, the author published a video playlist demonstrating the various parts of the creation process.
Our second place winner is Learning to Stay Healthy by Paul & Martin Consulting.
- The lesson leveraged a wide range of Power BI capabilities to create dynamic backgrounds, What If parameters, and included several custom visuals and data sources.
- It’s a visually fun and inviting lesson that we could easily see in any high school nutrition class.
The third place winner and also the community favorite is Estimate Electricity Energy Usage and Cost by Duc Nguyen.
- The lesson was a creative, fun way to connect energy to our daily lives; therefore, it’s very useful for middle school and high school energy lessons.
- The author demonstrated great use of Power BI by creating a truly interactive lesson, spanning across several data sources.
Congratulations to all winners and thank you to everyone that participated this year!
