Fire Tech Camp was a great experience and the best camp I've ever been to. I think the camp does a great job in combining fun with learning.Emma, 13yr old programmer
Senior Adventures in Artificial Intelligence (AI)
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
Learn how AI is being used in the world 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 a smart home smarter.
Machines of the Future
We'll look at machines of the future such as robots, nanobots, collective A.I. units and evolutionary computers. What are the best ways to create AI and Machine Learning without introducing built-in bias.

A typical day begins with children arriving between 9.45 and 10am. There is then a warm-up activity and an introduction to the next step in developing projects. Project work will last all morning with a break for a snack. Lunch lasts for 60 minutes. Campers will keep following the course and working on their projects for the rest of the afternoon.
The Fire Tech curriculum team works tirelessly to design new and innovative programmes that give students the best possible experience. That means:
AN INTERACTIVE EXPERIENCE: We give students real-time teaching and constant support, while using interactive digital tools like video calls, collaborative whiteboards, and screen sharing. What better way to learn about technology than to use it?
LEARN THROUGH PLAY: kids love our courses because they learn through play. Activities and games are scheduled into the day, and we also include sunshine breaks and movement activities to make sure students do not sit for long periods.
EXCITING CONVERSATIONS: Kids are naturally curious. We love to prompt conversations that help them understand the world around us and develop critical thinking. We might look at examples of how modern companies use robots or wonder how Pac Man got its shape.
NEW FRIENDSHIPS: real human connection has been a big part of why kids are enjoy our courses. In between lessons, they might introduce their pets, talk about the posters in their room or just show their colourful personalities.
A MASTERPIECE TO TAKE HOME: Fire Tech has a project-based pedagogy, meaning everyone graduates from Fire Tech with something tangible that they created to share proudly with family and friends.
Led by our tech-loving instructors, you’ll create a home of the future using Artificial Intelligence (AI), programme 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.
But 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 reoffending, as well as in art to create new art from analyzing music from composers like Brahms. PwC estimates AI deployment will add $15.7 trillion to global GDP by 2030. Interested? We thought so!
