About

Dethorning STEM is run by Max Goldstein, a senior 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).

He is a DJ and the Operations Director at WMFO Tufts Freeform Radio. His coursework includes visualizations, human-computer interaction (user experience), networks, algorithms, machine learning, electrical circuits, astrophysics, media theory, and psychology. In 2010, Max graduated from the International Baccalaureate program at Stanton College Preparatory School in his hometown of Jacksonville, Florida.

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 information technology has done, and is doing, to human society. Only then can we decide what it should do.

  1. I couldn’t agree more that the technical disciplines are not lifeless. There is so much interesting stuff there and I am eager myself to try and communicate its enjoyment to others. Keep it up.
