Dethorning STEM is run by Max Goldstein, a junior computer science major at Tufts University School of Engineering in Medford, Massachusetts. The blog examines the technical, philosophical, cultural, educational, and personal impact of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).
In 2010, Max graduated from the International Baccalaureate program at Stanton College Preparatory School in his hometown of Jacksonville, Florida. While there, he participated on a FIRST robotics team for four years and has returned to mentor them and another team in Boston. He is a DJ and the Operations Director at WMFO Tufts Freeform Radio. His coursework includes data structures, machine-level programming, human-computer interactions (user experience), networks, algorithms, machine learning, electrical circuits, astrophysics, and psychology.
Dethorning STEM attempts to counteract the notion that technical disciplines are lifeless, unrewarding, and impenetrable to outsiders. Rather, these fields are progressing so fast that society has not yet learned how to approach them. The last decade has witnessed an unprecedented revolution in culture and information sharing. We are still struggling to understand exactly what technology has done, and is doing, to human society.
