Mathematica Summer Camp 2012 Was a Success!

July 16, 2012 — Crystal Fantry, Manager, Education Content

Mathematica Summer Camp ran July 1–13 at Curry College. This year we had 22 high school students from all over the world who came together to learn Mathematica. By the end of camp, each student created his or her own Mathematica program, which they presented on Friday. They all worked hard to complete their projects in order to submit them to the Wolfram Demonstrations Project.

During their time at camp, students had the opportunity to learn Mathematica’s programming language and get a sneak peak at complexity and chaos theory as well as a variety of different topics presented by guest speakers. The guest speakers presented on Wolfram|Alpha, magnetic resonance images (MRIs), image processing, game programming, and integer sequences. Stephen Wolfram also spoke to the students on several occasions on topics ranging from the history of math to life advice.

Outside of the classroom, students enjoyed activities including a photo scavenger hunt, movies, video games, a Boston Duck Tour, a tour the Museum of Science, and a hike at Blue Hills.

The students all left camp with new programming skills, more mathematical knowledge, and many new friends.
