In this section, you will find summaries of upcoming ALA programs which will be offered for high school students. Teachers may sign up for curriculum that they can modify for their own class projects.
Fall 2022: Dragons Lair. This course is learning and building an AI visual recognition program that will meet a need in your school or a business in your community. You can earn certificates by completing our online course. This is a student-directed and project-based program that will engage you towards new insights and discoveries about the uses of AI. Student teams meet in their own private metaverse. More to come.
Atactic: O2O Spring 2024
Humans have only explored only a fraction of Earth's oceans, and yet, on Ganymede, a moon that orbits Jupiter, lies a water world larger than anything on Earth. To explore that world we need to know more about this one. How will A.I. aid in exploring a foreign moon? What type of robotic controls will be needed? How do we prepare for the unknown world with possible unknown dangers? Oceans 2 Oceans is a program exploring A.I., Oceanography, space flight, robotics, programming and more.
This online project is designed to help students learn more about AI visual recognition. Students learn about programmer biases, how to collect data, how to train a machine to learn, and finally how to make connections into the real world by addressing a real world problem. More to come.
Drones have become very popular, but human controlling them have had serious fatal accidents. What if, A.I. controlled the drones for tasks like delivery and filming. In this program, students learn about A.I., programming, drones, and flight. This is a project with future implications and promises.
Ethics in Met-AI
The metaverse is no longer fiction, but being explored and used everyday. This is a four-week online program series that will focus on ethics and AI., and we will explore it within a metaverse environment.
The projects contain:
1. Learning to program AI through Python
2. What are the ethical challenges in A.I.
3. Build an A.I. Virtual Assistant Project
4. Work in student teams within an online 3D Immersion
5. Complete the project for an ALA Certificate
