Developed by Stanford and MIT alumni, the new program teaches students the fundamentals of AI to build socially impactful projects to improve the world

Empowerly, a data-driven education technology company that provides personalized college admissions counseling and career guidance to students and their families, announced the launch of its Artificial Intelligence (AI) Scholar Program. Developed by Stanford and MIT alumni, the Program was created as a way to empower students from grades 7 through 12 to learn how to apply AI to build socially-impactful projects.

With Empowerly’s AI Scholar Program, students are not required to have any prior programming or computer science experience. Students that do have prior experience will be eligible to join an advanced cohort. The Program consists of 10 sessions (25 hours total) taught by a team of graduate students from StanfordMIT, and more, with a student-to-teacher ratio of 5-to-1 for a more personalized learning experience. Course structure is broken down into three parts:

  • Machine Learning Talks: Students will study machine learning algorithms and techniques in an interactive format before applying that knowledge in live coding labs.
  • Hands-On Python Coding: In addition to machine learning, students will develop Python skills, using research to solve real-world problems like heart disease prediction, assistive technologies, and more.
  • Project-Based Learning: In this final capstone project, students will apply their newly acquired talents in a collaborative, challenging environment, applying AI to an in-depth, social-good project. Examples include allocating resources for disaster relief, sketch recognition, or creating a website to recommend healthcare options.
