Technology

Artificial intelligence workshop

Ages 9–14

AI is the future, and Gen Z must be prepared for it. At EASE, we want to make AI education accessible to our Gen Z population. The fundamentals AI course will define basic concepts in the field of AI, describe functions of AI, apply principles of coding to demonstrate understanding of AI concepts, and evaluate applications of AI technologies. Our goal is to make learning AI fun through emphasis on the nontechnical components of learning, combining art and multimedia. Students learn computer science in the context and concentration of STEAM education, infusing their work with what makes us human. Students also learn soft–skills such as presentation techniques, leadership and collaboration. No class Oct. 10

Robotics and engineering

Ages 9–14

EASE Education offers a stimulating robotics program for young engineers. Utilizing artificial intelligence concepts and machine learning algorithm as theoretical foundation, students work in teams to plan, build, test, and modify their own robotic creations! We use VEX GO construction system that teaches the fundamentals of STEM through fun, hands–on activities that help young students perceive coding and engineering in a fun and positive way. We help creative minds put mathematical concepts to the test as they develop a better knowledge of robotics, computer programming and teamwork.
