WHERE CAN I LEARN MORE ABOUT THE SUMMER CAMP?
You can hear more about the camp experience from alumni in the Wolfram High School Summer Camp Livestream Series, led by alumna Anwesha Das. In part one, Future Directions, alumni discuss their plans for the future and how being a part of Wolfram student programming has shaped their academic trajectories. In An Exploration of Project Work I and An Exploration of Project Work II, alumni discuss the projects they worked on at camp and what they learned from the experience. In Girls in STEM, some of our female alumnae discuss the challenging, fast-paced and inclusive environment of camp and talk about their journeys into STEM. In The Virtual Camp Experience, alumni from 2019 (in person) and 2020 (online) discuss the differences and similarities in their experiences of camp.
