From the makers of Wolfram|Alpha and Mathematica
Why Choose the Wolfram Language?
By learning to program in the Wolfram Language, students are learning the language of Mathematica, which is used by thousands of colleges, universities, companies and government organizations throughout the world. Give them an early advantage by introducing them to the Wolfram Language today.
The Wolfram Language will help students turn their ideas into reality, and is more intuitive than conventional programming languages. It's the language used to create Wolfram|Alpha—powerful enough to compute answers to millions of queries per day, yet easy enough for an elementary school student to learn.
With its vast built-in knowledgebase, the Wolfram Language immediately allows students to create programs that relate to their everyday experiences and interests in the real world.
Graphics are ubiquitous in the Wolfram Language—so your students can always make pictures and engage visually.
The Wolfram Language is set up to automate as much as possible—so programmers and students alike can concentrate on programming concepts, not the low-level details of computer operation.
The Wolfram Language is a knowledge-based programming language, which means that it includes information about virtually all aspects of the world in the language itself. Whether it's from real-world data or built-in math algorithms, programming in the Wolfram Language exposes students to computational thinking over a full range of STEAM concepts.
How are students using the Wolfram Language outside of the Hour of Code?
