Artificial Intelligence & Programming FRIDAYS w/ Ready AI (Grades 4-8)

Friday, June 11, 2021

In this class, students in grades 4 to 8 will learn about the hottest AI topics, including path planning, speech recognition and more. Starting with the definition of artificial intelligence, students will learn what constitutes AI and be able to identify AI applications in their lives. Students will code a virtual robot in Calypso, an AI programming framework. In their code, students will make use of AI applications such as speech recognition and path planning. By coding a virtual robot to chase objects, plan paths to destinations and solve mazes, students will learn computational thinking and programming while learning about behind-the-scenes AI technology in self-driving cars. Register in advance, and the Zoom link will be emailed to you prior to class.
