Ways we can help

We offer a set of pioneering initiatives to increase the use of computational thinking (CT) for problem-solving at all levels and in all sectors. This includes ready-made courses and materials for professionals—with or without a technical education—colleges, schools and students. We are also the foremost organisation for advising policymakers and governments on reform of educational systems and building new curricula to empower the next generation with computational thinking.

All sections 

Colleges and universities

Be ahead in changing your courses to computational courses—preparing your students for tomorrow's field today.

Whether it's a move from biology to computational biology or law to computational law, computational thinking is key to every future course. As high-powered computation is driving progress in the world's top companies, governments and universities, preparing students to use it now is crucially important. Students should be taught how to employ computational thinking in the context of their course, giving them relevant skills and an advantage that employers will be looking for.

Services

Ready-made and custom-built CT resources

We can deliver fully packaged, broad-based CT courses to underpin a range of study paths. See inside our problem-solving modules.

Example projects
  • Data science: Working with real data of all scales, incorporating modern visualisation, statistics and data-driven probability.
  • Geometry: Specifying constructs in space and their movement in multiple dimensions.
  • Information theory: Efficiently and securely communicating datasets, images, sound or objects.
  • Modelling: Computational models—scope, techniques, construction and application of modern computation to real-world problems.
  • Architecture of computation: Utilising underlying structures and concepts of the computational system.

Curriculum development

We can convert your existing courses to inject CT or build completely new courses with CT at their heart.

Example projects
  • Computational ecology: How much smaller will the Great Barrier Reef be in 20 years?
  • Computational civil engineering: How do you model an evacuation?
  • Computational English: How have the President's speeches evolved?
  • Computational medicine: How can AI be used to detect disease?
  • Computational sociology: Who is better? How do you decide?

Curriculum analysis

We can work with your team to review your current provision including mathematics, computer science, other STEM subjects and business studies and provide training for CT skills to be integrated into your own courses.

Example projects
  • Reviewing existing courses' CT provision and comparing with ComputationalThinking.Org's required outcomes.
  • Reviewing problem-based learning opportunities and recommending opportunities to incorporate course-relevant CT-based skills.
  • Training course designers in ways to begin integrating a CT approach into your existing courses.
  • Training course leaders in the use of Wolfram technology in day-to-day learning.
