AI Family Challenge @ HCPL

 

Sign up
HERE!

Harris County Public Library is part of the first-ever global initiative to support families learning Artificial Intelligence together. We have partnered with Curiosity Machine to bring artificial intelligence learning to children and families who may submit projects to a global competition!

Children ages 8 to 15 and their families learn to use AI technologies and tools to solve problems in their communities around transportation, community-building, health, education, crime, safety, air and water quality, emotional well-being, and the environment. They also learn how to communicate these ideas and translate them into a real business.
