LA Makerspace is a nonprofit focused on teaching valuable hands-on STEAM education to encourage the next generation, especially those who are under-represented and under-resourced, to be empowered Makers, shapers and drivers of tomorrow. We do this primarily through the awesome public libraries. From Scratch coding to craft robotics to e-textiles, we develop and deploy great free curriculum and classes to help inspire the next generation. Please check us out at http://lamakerspace.org/

We developed this specific artificial intelligence activity because in 10 years, today's 12-year old will have to answer questions and develop solutions to issues and opportunities that we are only beginning to understand. Hands-On AI, along with other fun (and cheap) LA Makerspace hands-on projects, attempts to demystify and simplify some of the ideas, questions and responsibilities around this area. These are just seeds. But we all know what seeds do : )
This guide and summary video were developed with teachers and workshop leaders in mind, but the activity can be adapted to any size group by adding or removing various parts of the exercise. You can also do it at home as a family activity! We published this under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License so that you can freely take, make better, remix, share out and more. And a special thanks to all the friends who helped bring this to life!
