It’s that time of year again! Time to apply for the Mathematica Summer Camp 2013! The camp is being held at Bentley University in Waltham, Massachusetts, July 7–19. Students will have the opportunity to learn Mathematica’s computing language, work with Wolfram mentors, and interact with other students with similar interests. By the end of camp, each student will have created his or her very own Mathematica program!
Last year the camp was a great success, and students worked on a variety of projects, from modeling diseases to stereographic projection of platonic solids.
For example, Steven Wang created a simulation of Boids flocking behavior. He came up with the idea and created the program himself, with Erin Craig as his mentor. At the end of camp, Steven said, “I met a lot of smart kids, learned how to manage a huge program, and learned important life lessons.”
Other Demonstrations from Mathematica Summer Camp alumni include:
- “Limit Proofs Using Epsilon-Delta” by Konrad Wrobel
- “Stereographic Projection of Platonic Solids” by Emile Okada
- “Comparing Writing Styles of Famous Texts” by Arkady Arkhangorodsky
Be sure to check out all the Demonstrations created at last year’s Mathematica Summer Camp.
This unique, two-week overnight camp is designed for students entering their junior and senior years in high school. We look forward to seeing all of the most talented high school students at camp this year. The students who attended last year had a great time, and we are sure that this year’s students will as well! Here are some comments from last year’s students.
“I hope I can come back next year! This camp is a math nerd’s dream summer camp.”
– Paul Epperson
“Awesomeness packed within a layer of fun-ness, packed within a layer of coding and math, packed within a layer of awesomeness.”
