Tech Innovation Track

The Tech Innovation track is an intensive 12-day program geared toward advanced technology and entrepreneurial precollege students. Students will learn Wolfram Language programming skills through projects and lectures. The camp combines hands-on training with Wolfram employees and instructors, peer collaboration, expert speakers on topics of interest, and individual exploration. Each student is expected to conceptualize and develop an innovative technology project.
