We hope you had a chance to tune into the first-ever Wolfram|Alpha Homework Day. We are still delighted by all of the excitement!

The 14-hour webcast was jam-packed with insightful demonstrations, thought-provoking interviews, interesting Q&A with the Wolfram|Alpha scholars, and much, much more. We’ve started uploading video highlights in case you missed parts or want to see them again.

Our host, Eric Hansen, kicked off the event with an interview with Wolfram|Alpha creator Stephen Wolfram.

Famous physicist and author Brian Greene joined us to talk about why this is such an exciting time for science and technology.

And Wolfram|Alpha’s own mad scientist Theodore Gray turned up the heat on Homework Day by using Wolfram|Alpha to prep for a fiery experiment.

These are just a few of the many highlights from Homework Day. We look forward to sharing more video clips from the event with you very soon.


Love the Theodore Gray segment. Dorks setting flower pots on fire. I gotta try some of that.

Thanks for making the chat with Stephen available, as some of us missed that.

Theodore Gray’s segment was very entertaining! Glad to see that made it.

I look forward to seeing the conversation with Richard Dreyfuss added to the list soon as well. After all, it is part of our universe’s unique history.
