Technovation Families

With several months of social distancing and sheltering in place underway, parents and caregivers may be looking for a new family activity to engage the young people in their lives. Technovation Families is a great option. This platform does more than introduce users to the "core concepts of artificial intelligence;" it invites users to "imagine a better world and build it together." The program is free, but users will have to create an account to participate. Under the AI Family Challenge tab, users will find ten lessons that help "families learn foundational skills needed to utilize and explore aspects of AI, while participating in hands-on activities where they get to actually engage in building AI agents." These lessons culminate in the creation of an AI invention that families can enter in a worldwide competition. More information about the competition is available under the About Us tab, on the World Summit and Important Dates pages. Looking for additional opportunities to improve AI skills? Check out the Design Challenges tab, where visitors will find more than 100 activities and projects. These materials can be sorted by category (for example, "Art of Science" or "Computer Science") for more manageable browsing. Technovation is a "global tech education nonprofit," and receives support from corporate partners, including Adobe, Google, and Uber.
