Wolfram Computation Meets Knowledge

Back to Research-Based Educational Programs

19th Annual Wolfram Summer School Online

Wolfram Technology & Innovation Track

In the Innovation track, 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.
