Fengxi Sun is a junior at Gustavus Adolphus College at Minnesota where she is double majoring in Psychology and Computer Science. Her academic interests focus on the nexus between learning and technology, especially on how modern technology can be utilized for enhanced learning experiences. This led her to research on the effect of digital slides and handout design on student learning and note-taking for her psychology honors thesis.
Fengxi’s interest in Computer Science began during the fall semester of 2018 when she took a course that provided her the opportunity to conduct community projects that support local mental health organizations. She learned about the flexibility and necessity of coding to develop computer-related programs as planned by the group. Since then, she has acquired a substantial amount of theoretical and practical knowledge related to programming.
