Longtime Mathematica user Brian Greene (a prize-winning author and Columbia University professor) just launched the World Science U
website. Its a place where high school students, science majors, and lifelong learners can explore topics in science with top educators.
You can see Greene introduce WSU in this YouTube video: About World Science U
Courses feature interactive demonstrations on things like the speed of light, the theory of relativity, quantum mechanics and more, and the demos are powered by the Wolfram Language and Wolfram's Computable Document Format.
Its exciting to see CDF being used by an organization thats advocating science education for everyoneand in such a visually appealing way!
I recommend touring the site where you can get more details about the kinds of courses being offered:
- Science Unplugged: Short video answers to scientific questions
- Short Courses: Two- to three-week courses for lifelong learners without exams or homework
- University Courses: Eight- to ten-week university-level courses where students can earn Wold Science U certification
Is anyone else out there using CDF in this way? Wed love to know about it.
