Course Overview

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the hottest topic in tech right now and is already having a significant impact on our lives. Want to know how a computer named ‘Deep Blue’ beat a chess grandmaster over twenty years ago? Or how the AI behind AlphaGo beat the best human ‘GO’ player in the world?

Learn how to create complex AI models. Create a celebrity response bot, make and then train a video game to play itself, and even create a friendly alien detector all on this new course!

This is an excellent choice for children interested in technology, coding and AI. Absolutely no previous programming knowledge is required. It is perfect for beginners who are curious to learn more about one of the hottest and dynamic tech topics around!

Students looking for a broader introduction to computer science fundamentals should check out our Junior Coder course while those interested in gaming might also be interested in our Video Game Design course.

This is an online course taught live by an expert who is fully DBS-checked. You will join a small group of other young learners online, working together and making lots of progress in fun and interactive sessions. All classes are monitored and recorded for safety.

This course is also available in part-time formats.

What your child will learn

  • The fundamentals of Machine Learning and what confidence means in AI models
  • What AI can and cannot do well

"All the staff were amazing and really helpful. This course really boosted my confidence with computers and video game design. It was really fun and I made a lot of friends I'll be sorry to say goodbye to. Writing the coding was even more fun than playing the games."
