AI4ALL Open Learning is designed to equip educators and community members to empower high school students with relevant and approachable AI education. The program can be incorporated into the classroom, a club, or a workshop and provides 30+ hours of free curriculum with facilitator guides.
Open Learning is meant to introduce learners to AI without requiring any background in programming or math. It contains 5 units that can be mixed and matched to create a course with 10, 20 or 30 hours of instruction. All of the courses include unit plans and facilitation guidelines and hit on a number of important topics (including AI careers and AI design).
Students Will Learn:
What AI and Machine Learning are
Who some role models in AI are
The benefits and risks of AI and Machine Learning to the world and to themselves
How they can be involved in the world of AI and Machine Learning

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
