Learning Julia takes time. Unfortunately, as a high schooler balancing school and extracurriculars, time is a hard resource to find. Combining learning Julia and chemistry/calculus with Pluto notebooks works around that constraint. At first, the programs were basic but as time passed, the notebooks became more advanced through packages like Catalyst.jl and DifferentialEquations.jl. The next step is to learn more specifics about these packages as I learn more chemistry/calculus.
This talk will discuss the various tools used to build the notebooks and why the notebooks helped with comprehension and retention.
