AI & Me

April 2 @ 1 pm EST / 10 am PST
Grade level: 3rd grade and up

This lesson is an introduction to AI for everyone! Using examples from students’ lives such as voice assistants, we discuss the Five Big Ideas in AI (Perception, Representation and Reasoning, Learning, Human-AI Interaction, Social Impact) and leave with ideas of how to use AI to improve our lives.

Machine Learning with Teachable Machine

April 9 @ 1 pm EST / 10 am PST
Grade level: 5th grade and up

This engaging lesson teaches how AI learns to categorize things (sorting spam vs. nonspam emails) by solving a puzzle. Then they will upload data and train their own machine learning model!

AI Programming, Path Planning I

April 16 @ 1 pm EST / 10 am PST
Grade level: 3rd grade and up

This lesson introduces what’s behind AI robots today, how they plan their path vacuuming floors (iRobot) or they accurately find products on shelves (Amazon warehouse bots). Students will program their virtual robot to chase after cubes!

AI Programming, Maze Solving

April 23 @ 1 pm EST / 10 am PST
Grade level: 3rd grade and up

This fun, visual lesson lets students take a peek inside the technology behind self-driving cars — students will build their own maze and have the robot solve the maze in order to get to the destination, in real time!

AI Programming, Speech Recognition

April 30 @ 1 pm EST / 10 am PST
Grade level: 3rd grade and up

This lesson introduces how AI speech works (e.g. Alexa, Siri) and teaches students to apply speech functions with multiple AI agents. Students will leave having programmed a conversation between themselves and the AI character!

AI Programming, Path Planning II

May 7 @ 1 pm EST / 10 am PST
Grade level: 3rd grade and up

This lesson builds upon Path Planning I and builds computational thinking and logical reasoning skills by solving a fun challenge.

 

AI Programming, Game Design

May 14 @ 1 pm EST / 10 am PST
Grade level: 3rd grade and up

This lesson introduces the game and scores features in Calypso and challenges students by having them program a game. They will have the opportunity to build their own games using what they learned in class.
