Concept

Mission

  • To devise free, open source scripts that help visualize and further understanding of scientific, technical, engineering and mathematical (STEM) concepts

  • To supply simple yet powerful scripts that help engineers and designers to create experiments without having to be dedicated software 'full stack programmers'

  • To help youngsters and oldsters delve into new topics with a hands-on, active, 'I can play with this' approach

  • To create apps that work not just on computers but also on mobile devices such as phones and tablets

Vision

  • To help envision new types of visualizations

  • To help people understand, tackle and push the envelope with increasingly complicated tasks based on the scientific method
