Aspiring applications developer Paige Bormann is a third year Computer Science & Engineering major at The Ohio State University. She is a STEM Exploration & Engagement Scholar and a member of the Association of Computing Machinery – Women’s Chapter. Paige is also a Student Network Engineer at Ohio State’s Telecommunications Network Center (TNC). She writes Python scripts and tests them with a Unix system to automate the tedious tasks of network engineers. Her scripts have helped automate device configuration changes, delete duplicate entries from a database, and find information associated with domain names or IP addresses across multiple APIs. More specific information about her projects at the TNC can be found in Paige’s Second Year Artifacts. Paige’s experiences at the TNC have reinforced her passion for creating applications to improve the lives of others. Her passion has pushed her to lead a three-day AspireIT program, speak at the 2018 Columbus Women in Tech Conference, and complete her first iOS application. The app, STEM Ease, is designed with the needs of fellow STEM Exploration & Engagement scholars in mind and aims to help scholars better keep track of their progress through the program. Most recently, Paige completed her first software engineering internship and won a Student Employee of the Year award at the TNC. As her third year of college starts amidst the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, Paige is still optimistic and excited about the opportunities that her third year will bring.
