Congratulations to Ben for winning 1st place for his Litter work
During the summer of 2011, Benjamin Englard, a junior in high school, conducted research in our lab (ACIS) as part of the SSTP program and contributed to the Litter project (a decentralized Twitter alternative). Ben implemented several features in Litter from finding gaps in a user’s timeline to enhancing the web interface. In January 2012, Ben competed in the Miami-Dade County Science Fair and won first place. Congratulations Ben, and good luck as you continue on to the state fair.
