What should I learn this summer?

  1. May 29, 2010 #1
    Besides spending all my times playing video games, I want to do something productive this summer. I want to learn something.

    I have wide interests including neuroscience, physics, computers, philosphy etc. but have never really pursued any of these.

    The furthest math I know is calc 1 and 2.

    So, given this, recommend me something fun/interesting! I learn from the internet or books.

    If I was in your position, I'd contact one of my professors to see if I can get a summer position in a lab or in some company she or he may be in contact with.

    Forgot to mention I just graduated high school. I go to the uni this fall so I don't know any prof yet.

    You can study basic linear algebra without knowing any calculus (and by basic I mean first/second year level).
