The Nontrivial Solution
The Nontrivial Solution consists of multimedia newsletters that each cover an important topic in science, technology, engineering, and/or math. Our newsletters can take the form of articles, infographics, videos, and podcasts by students explaining a topic, synthesizing past research by scientists, or discussing their own research or projects.
