Last summer, I had the amazing opportunity to teach at the Mathematica Summer Camp, where a small group of bright and kind students gathered to learn about the Wolfram Language and have their projects published. The daily schedule was a heavy dose of the Wolfram Language, mathematics and computer science but what made the opportunity special for me was watching the students share and interact with one another. Conversations would change from discussing proper ways to use pure functions, to the World Cup, to orientability of Mobius strips, back to their individual projects. Once, a group of students staged an impromptu orchestral performance right before lights-out, and this was after a full day of classes, projects, activities and homework!
The Mathematica Summer Camp is a truly amazing opportunity for intelligent students who wish to meet equally smart peers with whom they can learn, interact and form lasting connections-- I see many of my students still interacting via social media. Getting to publish their own projects is just the cherry on the pie.
