One of the pleasant surprises at FETC 2020 was passing by a “STEM Theater” area of the convention floor and seeing a presentation on Telling Stories in Math (or something like that) about to begin. I sat down and listened to a fellow with a slight German accent describe how their are many stories that can be told to keep mathematics interesting. He had a slide deck to accompany the talk.

Little did I know that it was by the Philipp Legner, founder of Mathigon, one of my most favorite online math textbook/resource. And Mathigon is just a side project of his (he works at Google).

Best buddies!
