ASU undergraduates are involved in nearly every aspect of the project. Many of them are able to participate through the New College Undergraduate Inquiry and Research Experiences (NCUIRE) Program, which Wang credits for providing students with the opportunity to work on meaningful research.

“Every line of code was written by undergraduate students,” she said. “It’s real industry experience because we’re building this real tool. And I’m very proud of what they do, and I think they’re proud of themselves, too, because they see what they can do. It’s not something abstract. The output is real; it’s something people can actually use.”

Applied computing senior Andrew Lamontagne has been working on the project for a few semesters, handling raw data on the back end, from collection to processing to cleaning to visualization.
