“Hi, I’m Steven Farabaugh. I’m a student at UAF and an employee at ARSC. I’ve been developing an Android app for Frontier Scientists for the last few months. This experience has been awesome! I’ve been exposed to all sorts of interesting science that I would have never seen without this app. And that’s why I think it’s such a cool idea; science should be accessible and having this content in on the iOS and Android platforms is just awesome.” ~ Steven Farabaugh
