Wolfram Computation Meets Knowledge

Back to Summer Programs

19th Annual Wolfram Summer School Online June 28–July 16, 2021

Wolfram Science Track

A unique opportunity to do a research project, the Wolfram Science track is primarily for college and graduate students. Their projects take advantage of Wolfram technologies, methods found in Stephen Wolfram’s book A New Kind of Science and more recent developments like data science and machine learning to tackle original problems on the cutting edge of science. Student projects often turn into theses or publications, which can be the start of a new direction in their fields.
