Course Description

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are changing many industries. It's not just for developers – everyone needs to know a bit about AI/ML. This course has two parts: learning about AI/ML and learning how to use it in Middle and High School STEAM classes. During the course, participants will engage in hands-on robotics activities using AI. No prior robotics experience is required. 

Here's what you'll study:

  1. Understanding AI/ML: You'll learn about AI/ML and how it developed over time.
  2. Using AI/ML in Projects: See how AI/ML can be used in cool projects for Middle and High School classes.
  3. Ethical Discussions: We'll talk about the good and bad of AI/ML and what developers should think about when making new systems
  4. Personal Projects: You'll get time to work on your own projects and meet your own goals.

Basic Enrollment Requirements: Unofficial Transcript - Bachelor's + 2.75 GPA; Course requires access to students in a professional setting (teacher or otherwise)
