Turning tech consumers to CREATORS through early intervention.
The current lack of diversity among creators in Computer Science (CS) and Artificial Intelligence (AI), leads to the manufacturing of AI products that have built-in biases. These products do not serve everyone equitably, and in some cases end up harming underrepresented groups.
We introduce and demystify the world of CS and AI to elementary and middle school students in a fun, age appropriate manner, using a curriculum we developed. We hope this early intervention will transform their mindset to one of, "I can create this," and move them from being consumers to creators.
