Junior Adventures in AI: Exploring Artificial Intelligence
This course aims to introduce 3rd-grade students to the fascinating world of artificial intelligence in an age-appropriate, engaging, and enjoyable manner. By familiarizing students with AI tools and concepts, they can better understand the increasingly digital world around them and develop essential skills for the future. Through hands-on activities, games, creative exercises, and a fun final project, students will be encouraged to think critically and creatively about AI and its potential while fostering collaboration and cultivating problem-solving skills.
Fun and Simple Final Project: "AI Superheroes"
For the final project, students will work in teams to create a short comic strip featuring AI-powered superheroes. They will use ChatGPT to help generate ideas, storylines, and character backgrounds, incorporating their own creativity and imagination. They will use Midjourney to generate graphics to enrich their final projects. Students can draw their own illustrations or use AI-powered tools like NVIDIA Canvas for creating scenes. The comic strip should have 3-5 panels and include a beginning, middle, and end. Students will present their comic strips to the class and explain how they incorporated AI tools in their project.
