2018 Artificial Intelligence After School Program
Insights has partnered with Ricardo Estrada Middle School and Clint Junior High School in the Clint Independent School District to take part in the first-ever global initiative to support families learning artificial intelligence (AI) together. We partnered with Iridescent’s Curiosity Machine to bring artificial intelligence learning to children and families. Over 30 families from each middle school will meet throughout 2018 to learn about AI by completing eight different design challenges. Using everyday materials like cardboard, paper clips, and batteries, hands-on design challenges will also cover concepts in circuitry, the design process, and computer science. Skills gained during the spring and summers sessions will help families will plan, design, and submit a capstone project solving a real 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. The Curiosity Machine program aims to demystify AI for students and families by providing early and approachable introductions to AI technology that is reshaping the workforce.
