Frequently asked questions
How is it possible that you teach AI in just three weeks with zero coding experience?
Do you provide any scholarship? If so, what is the process for you to give scholarship?
Yes, we do provide scholarships for qualified students from low-income families. This is both a merit and need based scholarship. To qualify for the scholarship, we will need 3 things: 1) submit one application and indicate that you need a scholarship (please state it in the optional question). 2) submit your family previous year tax return. 3) we will conduct a final interview. Apply as early as you can as we have very limited space, and we will close the application as soon as we have enough qualified students.
What programming languages and algorithms you are teaching?
Is online learning a good way to teach AI?
Yes, our past experience and data proved that we can effectively teach students about coding and AI online. We have taught hundreds of students online as well as offline. Reflecting our experiences and students' progresses, we know online learning is very effective.
What are the class sizes?
For all our programs, we are only admitting 6 students per instructor. We experimented class sizes and found this is the right number of students for collaboration and personalized learning to happen.
What is the difference between the summer and the after-school program?
Both programs teach students the same materials, but the after-school program gives the students many opportunities to do homeworks. If you are looking for a tour of AI, the summer program is a great program. If you are looking for a solid understanding of the material, we highly recommend you join the after-school program.
Why are you doing this? What is your mission?
We founded this camp to help students get ready for the real world. We are doing this through teaching AI first as it is something we are experienced in. By making an AI product, students get to know what jobs in the tech industry are like, learn in-demand skills, and build connections with our mentors and advisors for their network. We hope by doing this early in students' life we will make long-lasting impact. Our students will learn how to pick a major, how to learn, network, and eventually become leaders in their chosen fields.
