Event Details

This event is generously supported by AlbertaAI visionary Sponsor: SAS Canada.

 

We are living in a changing world, where AI (Artificial Intelligence) is affecting our life almost every day and programming is becoming an essential skill for nearly all modern industries. In fact, by 2020, it is said to be 1 million programming jobs left unfilled.

Learning computer programming at a young age is very beneficial. It can help kids build a structured and logical way of thinking. Kids can also feel successful at getting a computer to do what they tell it to do. In this highly digital world, learning how to program can certainly help our kids set up for a lifetime of job opportunities. As leaders of our future world, our kids need the power of coding to face their future competition!

At “AI for kids” program, we focus on developing kids’ interest in computer programming and Artificial Intelligence. Our experts will teach kids the very basic programming logic in Python language. There will also be lots of games and vivid demonstrations (video, robots, etc.) in this class - a great way to make learning fun!
