Technology programs bring AI Insights to El Paso residents
EL PASO, Texas (KFOX/CBS4) —
The Insights El Paso Science Center Inc. and Iridescent's Curiosity Machine announced a partnership Tuesday with two area schools to help families learn about artificial intelligence collaboratively.
The program will work with Ricardo Estrada Middle School and Clint Junior High School to assist families in a joint learning initiative starting Feb. 27.
The organizations said it will work with over 30 families from each school to learn about AI (artificial intelligence) by completing various design challenges, a press release states.
By using everyday items like cardboard, paper clips and batteries, the organizations said it will help families and students learn about circuitry, the design process and computer science.
"Skills gained during the spring and summers sessions will help families plan, design and submit a capstone project solving a real problem in their community to a global competition," the press release reads.
The two groups said the program's aim is to make complicated AI concepts more approachable for participants by breaking them down into more simple terms and allowing participants to see how those concepts will be used in the modern workforce.
The Insight El Paso Science Center Inc. was founded in 1980. Its goal is to promote science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) education throughout El Paso.
The Iridescent's Curiousity Machine is an organization that helps families learn about complicated technological concepts together.
The group's first meeting will be Feb. 27 at 4:30 p.m. at Clint Junior High School.
The second meeting will be March 1 at 4:30 p.m. at Ricardo Estrada Middle School.
Both of those events will include a circuitry design challenge, raffle prizes and great food, organizers said.
