Wolfram Computation Meets Knowledge

Wolfram Summer School

Educators can use this opportunity to develop education tools using Wolfram technologies. The first phase will be training, which includes a series of lectures and hand-on talks on educational innovation by leading educators from academia and developers from Wolfram Research. The focus of potential 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.
