STEM Communication

How might we make digital STEM communication easy?

Despite the proliferation of tablets in the last decade, few people seem comfortable using technology for handwritten communication. Many STEM students and researchers are likely to send a long and confusing email or hold a piece of paper up to a webcam during a Skype session in order to discuss a problem that is most naturally expressed by hand. (Examples include mathematical calculations, circuit diagrams, molecular structures, and many others.) Our goal is to design software to facilitate easy and quick communication of these concepts and (possibly) integrate it with existing affordable writing hardware, providing STEM students and researchers with an out-of-the-box solution to make communication easy.

    Alex Bolanos

    I am a rising sophomore at Princeton University, and am intending on majoring in Computer Science with a certificate in Neuroscience. In my free time I enjoy running, playing soccer, and hanging out with friends. I am fascinated by artificial intelligence and how we interact with computers, so I hope to be involved with that in the future.

    Leor Klainerman

    I'm an alumna of the great class of 2014. Having majored in Mathematics, I then pursued a masters in Probability and Statistics in France. After some time at the Technion in Israel, I returned home to work on a problem I felt acutely while living and learning overseas: facilitating long-distance communication, especially with research collaborators.

    Noga Zaborowski

    Noga is a rising junior at Princeton University, where she studies computer science. She is involved in Jewish life on campus and spends her time dreaming about all the mathematics and philosophy she could be studying. She's excited to join a project team this summer inspired by frustrations in mathematics and help them code a bit.
