2019 After School Computer Science Program
Insights has partnered with Clint Junior High School, Montana Vista Elementary School, IDEA Mesa Hills & IDEA Edgemere to take part in Season 2 of our After School Computer Science Program. Thanks to support from Microsoft Digital Skills, Microsoft TechSpark, and Technovation Families we will bring hands-on artificial intelligence (AI) learning to children and their families.
Technovation Families is a global initiative to support families learning artificial intelligence (AI) together. Schools, mentors, and families will come together by completing ten different training and design challenges using everyday materials like cardboard, paper clips, and batteries. These lessons will cover concepts in circuitry, inventive design process, and computer science skills to guide students and families to develop their inventions that use AI to solve problems in their community.
Families can also plan, design, and submit a capstone project solving a real-world problem in their community to a global competition!
Why AI? The World Economic Forum estimates that 65 percent of children entering primary school today will work in jobs that don’t exist yet. Through this program we aim to demystify AI for students and families by providing early and approachable introductions to AI technology that is reshaping the workforce.
