New Online School Offers AI Courses for Ages 7–18

A company has begun publishing online courses to help students learn about artificial intelligence. AI World School, launched by a company that produces robotics products for education, has developed a set of classes appropriate for three age ranges: 7 to 10, 11 to 13 and 14 and older. The lessons are all meant to be done via self-study.

While the courses last for either five weeks (for $30) or 24 weeks (for $99), access to them is longer--up to three months for the "micro" courses and up to a year for the more in-depth ones.

Lessons teach the basics of AI and show students how to create AI projects with freely available coding tools, including Scratch, Snap!, , MIT App Inventor, Python and JavaScript.

"We want to inspire students to discover the elements of AI and flourish in an AI driven world," said Chief Operating Officer, Aditi Prasad, in a press release.

"We seek to empower children to explore, learn and create with AI in an age-appropriate environment," added company Chairman, Ramana Prasad.

Robotix, the company behind the new online school, produces robotics coding program Phiro, screen-free coding robot Robobricks and screen-free STEM game Playbits.
