Data Science is an interdisciplinary field devoted to extract knowledge from large amounts of data. There is a great variety of programs that address the teaching of this field with a growing demand of professionals. However, data science pedagogy tends to emphasize general aspects of data and the use of tools instead of the its scientific dimension. This position paper describes an ongoing educational innovation project for the use of the Challenge-based Learning approach to teach and learn
