There’s a big problem with how we share academic scientific research. Across the world, almost every single science, technology, engineering or math paper published is in English. And here in the U.S., 21% of the United States population speaks a language other than English at home, a majority of them Spanish. Here in the Gem State, one in twelve Idahoans speaks Spanish at home.
That’s where Project SCIENTIA comes in. This Boise State University initiative is working to translate STEM research papers into Spanish, to reach and educate a greater audience.
