Neural Networks: Introducing your Students to AI

September 22, 2022 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm


A neural network is a tool used in machine learning, which is the foundation of modern artificial intelligence (AI). Inspired by human brain neurons, each neuron makes a small decision which combine into a network that helps us detect and make more complex predictions.

In this workshop, we’ll focus on AI within the realm of education and identify its importance in preparing students for the future of work. We’ll walk you through a few examples of neural networks strongly tied to the curriculum, before giving you a chance to build your own neural network using a free tool developed by STEAMLabs. You’ll also have a chance to connect with other educators to discuss the implications of ethics on AI, and apply an ethics lens to assessment resources provided.

This session may be applied to grades 7-9.

Prerequisites:   None!

This workshop is designed for beginners.
