  • Camp Description

    Artificial Intelligence (AI) is one of the bigger buzzwords today, and we’re ready to help you tackle it. What is AI? Why is it taking over the world? When will the Terminator come back and take down John Connor?? We’ll start out talking about AI use cases and dive into some fundamental algorithms and create some basic AI apps as well.

    Teaching Platform

    Rise of the Machines, Artificial Intelligence (AI) Coding Camp at theCoderSchool Depending on our campers’ skill levels, we’ll likely use Python or Scratch for our coding. AI typically is a focus on algorithms and logical design, so language and language syntax is less important. We’ll typically use the language the campers are more familiar with.

    Concepts Learned

    Our AI Camp will help de-mystify what artificial intelligence is, and how it’s used in the world. AI can be extremely complex, but like all software, it’s based on basic building blocks of logic. We’ll start with basic AI apps like guessing games, then dive into more fundamental AI apps like computer-opponent games or chatbots, and may get into more complex strategies of “computer thinking” based on campers’ progress. Specific applications will depend on skillset of campers enrolled. Campers will gain general skills like algorithm design, problem solving, code debugging, and perhaps most importantly, all campers will learn and practice the logical thinking skills required to program a computer at any level! In addition campers will gain experience in:
  • How AI affects our world today
  • Algorithm design and understanding
  • Deeper coding concepts that apply to all levels of coding
  • Brush up on the fundamentals, Python syntax and/or code structure, where appropriate (loops, variable, structure, etc)
  • and More!
  • Skill Level

    Knowledge of Python is helpful, but not required, as apps may be built in Scratch as well. Desire and ability to think through complex logical steps (algorithms) is required, because AI is all about algorithms! Note that this camp will focus less on graphics and visual feedback, and more on logical algorithm thinking. As always, if your camper is a regular Coder School student, be sure to check with us first, as sometimes this material is covered in more detail in our regular after-school Coaching sessions.

    What is theCoderSchool? We are an after-school drop-off (and virtual) program for kids learning to code - a coding school! There's after-school kung fu. There's after-school music lessons, sports, art, tutoring, Chinese, you name it, it's out there. But coding classes for kids? Founded in 2013, we're the first of many, and the largest in Silicon Valley with more locations on the way around the country. The future will be ever more dependent on technology so let's get our young generation ready. Learn to Code, Change the World®.
