Wolfram Computation Meets Knowledge

Wolfram Summer School

As a unique opportunity to do a research project, students learn how to apply Stephen Wolfram’s unique approach to creating ideas and turning them into products and companies that use Wolfram technologies. Their projects start with an idea, and by the end of the program, that idea has been developed into a working prototype that allows the students to pursue their ideas afterward. Projects are done under the supervision of leading developers from Wolfram Research.
