About the Summer Camp

The Mathematica Summer Camp is an intensive 12-day program geared toward advanced science, technology, and mathematics students entering grades 11 and 12. Students will learn Mathematica programming skills and higher math through projects and lectures. The camp combines hands-on training with Wolfram Research employees and instructors, peer collaboration, expert speakers on topics of interest, and individual exploration. Homework and individual projects will be assigned based on programming skill and subject interest.
