Wolfram Computation Meets Knowledge

Back to Research-Based Educational Programs

19th Annual Wolfram Summer School Online

Wolfram Educational Innovation Track

Educators can use this opportunity to develop education tools using Wolfram technologies. The focus of projects will be to change the way people learn and teach—for example, creating tools for students to use or management platforms for teachers. The lectures in this track will help educators learn how to use what is already available from Wolfram Research, and the staff will be able to share their experience in making educational technologies.
