Hopkins School is offering an in-person, pre-college, project-based artificial intelligence program through Inspirit AI
, an AI education program developed and taught by Stanford and MIT graduates this summer. The program will run for 10 sessions of 3 hours each in summer 2024. Inspirit’s team of Stanford alumni visited our campus to lead an immersive AI project-building program in summer 2023, and we are excited for them to return.
Students from grades 8-12 will learn the fundamental concepts of AI and gain a deeper understanding of how AI is used to build ChatGPT and generative AI, fight the COVID-19 pandemic, power self-driving cars, and more. Students will learn to program AI using Python, discuss ethics and bias within AI, and complete a group project applying AI to a discipline like healthcare, astronomy, finance, among others. No prior computer science experience is required to participate.
Inspirit’s curriculum features the most cutting-edge applications of AI and new projects to address pressing social concerns, from ethical chatbot engineering to mass layoffs analysis and more. A more advanced program will be available for students who participated in 2023, and we will contact last year’s families about that opportunity separately.
If you are interested in participating in this unique opportunity, please fill out this short interest form
. The program fee will be $1600 USD for 30 hours of hands-on learning with AI practitioners and graduate students from Stanford and MIT who will travel to New Haven to teach this pre-college program. Feel free to peruse the program brochure
