AI for Good Challenge Hackathon - Canberra
Date and Time
The AI for Good Challenge Hackathons
// Free engaging and future focused PD for teachers // Foster student agency // Learn about Artificial Intelligence // Innovate world-changing ideas // Win great prizes //
The AI for Good Challenge (aiforgood.com.au) is a national program run in 2019 by Education Changemakers and sponsored by Microsoft that is designed to help Australian high school students learn about AI, understand the ethics behind the technology and innovate AI concepts that could make a difference for the Earth, Accessibility or Humanitarian Action.
We have a comprehensive package of teacher resources on the AI for Good website for teachers to run their own classes in school, and beyond this are also hackathon days in Term 2, 2019 in the capital cities of every Australian state and territory.
The hackathon is designed for teachers and students who have engaged with Module 1 and Module 2 of the AI for Good Challenge (aiforgood.com.au) learning resources. We will be bringing part of Module 3 and all of Module 4 live to you at the hackathon so your teams have the opportunity to complete and submit your AI for Good Challenge solutions on the day!
On the hackathon days high school teachers and students will:
- Learn about AI as a technology (one of the most important advances for humanity for generations!).
- Engage with the ethics of AI (so students can have agency in technology that they use, and also technology that they will build in their future careers!).
- Innovate AI concepts, with the opportunity to also submit these on the day to the final AI for Good Challenge.
- Be trained in design-thinking by the award-winning Education Changemakers team.
The hackathon is free to attend, food and drinks are put on, and you can be assured they are highly informative, engaging and fun! It is sure to be a great day of PD for teachers and a brilliant learning experience for students.
Please only sign up if you are able to make it, as tickets are limited.
Transport/Parking: To create a carefree arrival and departure, we are encouraging you to carpool to the venue. It's also better for the environment :) Radford has very limited parking options.
