The presentation focused on two applets he created to allow students to carry out digital experiments in a way that promotes student discovery of statistical properties. The applets have been used in his STS110: Introduction to Statistical Reasoning and STS325: Design and Analysis of Experiments courses.

While at the conference, VanKrevelen also attended Council of Chapters meetings as part of his role as the chapter representative for the North Carolina chapter of the American Statistical Association.

Participation in the conference was partially funded by a CATL Travel Reimbursement Grant.
