Senior Adventures in Artificial Intelligence – Week-long
Machine Learning and A.I for kids
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the hottest topic in tech. Learners will build AI models to control autonomous vehicles and smart homes, and try to predict a movie’s success based on its poster. The ideal course to inspire further learning in AI!
AI in the world today
Discover how AI is being used right now. From autonomous cars to applications in medicine. We'll explore how these work, as well as the positives and negatives we need to be aware of.
Make a smart home smarter
Using AI and Machine Learning we will look at the ways we can create a smart home smarter.
Machines of the Future
We'll look at machines of the future such as robots, nanobots, collective AI units and evolutionary computers.

Lead Teachers have a strong background in education coupled with technical expertise in the area they teach. They are supported by Camp Instructors, who are most frequently talented Computer Science and Engineering students. All our instructors undergo in-person training from the Fire Tech team in the curriculum of the course they are teaching, in the Fire Tech mission and values, and in our Child Safety Policies. We select our instructors on technical expertise but also for great communication skills and a real passion for their subject.
Led by our tech-loving instructors, you’ll create a home of the future using Artificial Intelligence (AI), program an autonomous vehicle to avoid pedestrians and objects on the road, and use IBM Watson to build a series of AI models that can recognize a celebrity Twitter account based on their tweets. The possibilities are endless!
This course does more than teach the fundamentals of AI. It also explores issues of computer bias, ethics and the moral dilemmas programmers face when using AI. This is the ideal course to spark interest in this important and dynamic technological field, and will inspire students to continue their learning journey in AI.
AI is becoming an integral part of our lives, evolving and developing faster than we think. It’s being used in medicine to spot cancer cells, courtrooms to help determine the risk of criminals re-offending, as well as in art to create new art from analysing music from composers like Brahms. PwC estimates AI deployment will add $15.7 trillion to global GDP by 2030. Interested? We thought so!
This is an online learning course led by an onscreen 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 engaging sessions. All classes are monitored and recorded for safety.
This course is also available in part-time formats.
