Brit Cruise

This site is intended as a time capsule. It contains current & past research, experiments and multimedia projects. Contact me: britjcruise@gmail.com

I love creating experiences. Sometimes they educate.

I studied both Computer Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Western Ontario & McGill. I spent some time in the consulting industry doing algorithm design using probabilistic and graph theoretic techniques.

In early 2011 I launched an educational series titled: Art of the Problem on Kickstarter. This lead to an ongoing web series: Artoftheproblem.

I joined Khan Academy Jan 2012 – with 20 or so amazing people. I eventually developed lessons on Cryptography, Information TheoryScience Discoveries, Math Warmups and experimented with narrative driven challenges. I co-produced some lessons with content partners such NASAGoogle and Disney.

Starting in 2014  I co-created Pixar in a Box alongside Tony DeRose (short CBC interview or long Podcast) and a handful of others.  It is an initiative to create free interactive courses which demonstrate how concepts (math, science, art & writing) are used in the filmmaking process at Pixar. Think of it as an interactive behind the scenes featurette.

In 2017 I began a collaboration with IEEE to communicate the ideas behind key academic papers. (link coming soon).

I’m currently brainstorming new kinds of physical educational experiences as well as research into the blockchain sector.

If you are reading this, reach out anytime, I love collaborating and idea sharing!
