Aspiring software developer Paige Bormann is a second-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 Telecommunication Network Center (TNC). She writes scripts with Python and tests them with a Unix system to automate the tedious tasks of network engineers. Most recently, one of her scripts was used to automate the process of updating the configuration of 100+ Cisco and Juniper devices. Paige’s experiences at the TNC have reinforced her passion for using and sharing technology 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 volunteer at events aimed towards exposing young girls to technology. As Paige completes her second year of college, she plans to complete her first iOS app. The app, STEM Ease, is designed with the needs of fellow STEM Exploration & Engagement scholars in mind and will help scholars better keep track of their progress through the program. Paige is optimistic and excited about the opportunities that her second year will bring, and she hopes that this academic year is full of learning and growth.
