MIT News: IDEAS STEMGem Finds Love in the Lab

Congratulations to Larissa Nietner and Scott Nill! Co-founders of IDEAS team STEMGem–a wearable coding unit designed to engage young girls in STEM–and fellow PhD graduates, Nietner and Nill have a lot to celebrate come the end of their graduate careers. Now married, the two not only started their relationship but also two companies during their graduate study at MIT. Read all about their work, their experiences, and their shared goals in the MIT News!

“Teenagers, especially teen girls, are some of the most technologically engaged people in our population,” explains Nietner. “But what they learn in school often is not at all related to how they connect with technology on a daily basis.”
