Back to Summer Programs

Wolfram Summer SchoolFounded in 2003

18th Annual Wolfram Summer School, held at Bentley University June 28—July 17, 2020

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.
