Why should children be educated about AI?
Learning AI opens up a world of opportunities. As the fastest growing area of computer science, AI will become the most important change force when our children grow up so it is critical they learn about it early. AI is fun The field of AI started with scientists making computers learn to play games. AI is an incredibly fun way to introduce kids to programming and pique their interest in advanced topics like deep learning.
Lastly, a topic like AI naturally opens up discussions about our humanity. In our curriculum, we dig deep into questions like "does AI positively or negatively impact society?" In doing so we aim to develop critical thinking skills and encourage students to reflect deeply.

What are educators saying:
"I have enjoyed using the AI & Me books in my AI classes to teach a wide variety of topics including "Do robots have emotions?" and "What can robots with AI capabilities learn to do?" I recently taught my first grade students about the Turing Test and the books were a valuable resource to reinforce this concept. My students and I enjoy the bright pictures, the easy-to-follow storyline, and the clear terminology. I often have students asking - Can we please read that book again?"- Annabel H, Music & CSAI Teacher, Quest Academy
What are parents saying:
"My 1st grader loves this book. She already is really interested in computers, but this book got her thinking about how we actually tell emotions. She started using her camera on her computer to record different expressions."
"I have been looking for fun ways to introduce AI to my kid, and this definitely nailed it."
