How to Train Your Robot: MA Stem Week with i2 Learning

How to Train Your Robot is a full 1-week curriculum for middle school students to explore artificial intelligence and ethics. It was piloted in Massachusetts public schools during their annual STEM week. In this course, students participate in a range of hot-topic discussions and hands-on, creative activities to learn about how artificial intelligence is impacting society today. Students will design robot companions to solve real-world problems and use machine learning to make them intelligent. At the end of the course, you will have designed your very own robot companion to share with the world.
