Course Overview

This camp provides a very exciting interactive environment to introduce Python programming to create basic Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems and software to students. The camp is designed with the assumption of no programming experience. At first, it introduces the basics of programming at Python language in a very simple and highly practical manner. Then, the camp brings up the basic rules of AI and intelligent systems in a highly intuitive way. Finally, the camp will guide students to develop their own basic AI systems and software using simple and straightforward Python programming language constructs. With this, we hope to give a vivid experience and demonstrate the elegant beauty and simplicity of building an AI system without getting involved in mathematical details. The camp will focus on the example of building intelligent computer vision systems that can detect and identify objects similar to humans. The aim of the camp is to encourage students to pursue higher level education in Artificial Intelligence and smart computer systems. We will also discuss the job opportunities and industrial/market demand in AI and Python programming. Female students are highly encouraged to participate in this camp!

Please Note: Niner Academy and many 49er Minor camps are considered college-preparatory and/or career readiness camp programs for teens. Often through guest speakers, during field trips, and through class and peer-driven discussion, we may discuss societal and social issues. Campers' opinions and perspectives may differ from those of their peers and/or guest speakers; we encourage open discussion during camp. We seek to establish a camp environment where all voices are heard and opinions are respected.
Please Note: We rely on guardian discretion to select camp topics that are best suited for their child individually. Be sure to consider your child’s interests, personality, and developmental level when choosing the right camp.
