AI Project Week at Primary Schools

Primary school children should be taught the power and limitations of AI. This could be done in a project week. The goal is to introduce and raise children's interest about AI.

It shouldn't be based on numbers (then it's just another maths class) but on experiments

  • robotics (move from "how do I use this robot?" to "how do I create such a robot?")
  • gaming ("how does the computer calculate his next move?")
  • social media ("how does Facebook/Instagram decide what I gets shown?")
  • creating a hypothesis, then gathering data and validating it (as an introductory course to statistics/data science)

This program should be introduced at a minimum of 3 schools to run an experimental project week. The program can be standardized and the material can be given to schools at no cost.
