Hi Taliesin,

Welcome to the Fluid community. We're looking forward to having you involved in Floe and our work on sonification and the PhET sims. Once you've had time to settle in, I'm sure the community will be interested in hearing more about your Masters Research Project (MRP) and your ideas for how to make interactive simulations more accessible.

Best,

Colin

I should be able to attend stand-ups and community meetings later in the summer after August 15th and would like to get familiar with Floe and the PhET project over the summer.
