Online workshop directed to kids to introduce them to Artificial Intelligent “AI”, also for them to experience the abilities of the new technology. Besides, knowing the machine learning technique and put in their minds that the computer learns as we do.

The Instructions

Introduction ( Ice breaking )

In this we want to interact with the participant to break the boundaries.

After the welcoming and self introducing.

We will start by mentioning that ” I have no doubt you are using the computer every day for gaming, do homework, and even learn as we do know.” then we will open a space of time for them to ask a concern ” Have you ever thought the computer would be smarter than we are? ” .

One Minute would be enough to hear them saying yes and no.

you can ask them to justify their opinions or just end it by giving a good answer regarding what you believe.

For me : ” we invented these machine how could it be smarter!! ”

Artificial ( What does it mean )

This step is to break down the sentence "Artificial Intelligent" to clarify each part alone.

Simply here we are just going to give some examples about things that the human made.

Also, clarify that Artificial is any thing human made before and is going to make in the future.

Intelligent ( What does it Mean )

This is the second part of the sentence "Artificial Intelligent" we are going to discuss it with them and clear it also.

Here we are going to tell them what is the definition of Intelligent then we will give an example “ Imagine you touch a stove and it’s hot and your hand burns. Two days later, you are in front of another stove. Would you touch the stove without thinking? Or would you remember how you burned your hand and try to figure out if the stove is hot before you touch it?

( All of them would say No we won’t touch it)

so we can tell them this is an intelligent choice by using your previous knowledge to take advantage of it in the future.”This is Intelligent”

Artificial Intelligent

In this step we are going to combine the two words "Artificial" and "Intelligent" to clear it for them.


We will start telling that “AI” is referred to Artificial Intelligent.

Then we will clarify the expression “Artificial Intelligent” its the ability to make the machine can think and learn.

( We want to make the computer smart ) .

AI parts

This step to take the main three parts of AI in brief details.

AI has many parts but these are the main three.

Data : is every thing in this life and any thing could be consider under data; for them to understand go back and refer to the example of the intelligent, tell them the hand is a data, stove is data, fire is data, and burn is data.


Algorithms : is the way we use to link data together and its simply a mathematics equation for example ( hand + fire = burn ) here we built a link between the data and this what algorithms do.


Prediction : is the result of the algorithm or the equation ( burn means he will get hurt ).


Besides, you can give one more example the picture in the slide above shows a robot want to make a sorting for disks inside a known area.


Data : Disks, Area, disk place, and capacity.


Algorithm : is the way of connecting these data together to sort the disks.

9 disks = fixed area * disk place (variable)

10 disks fixed area * disk place (variable)


Prediction : Disk place


So the idea here is to let them understand the way the computer thinks.



In this step we want to clarify the algorithm for the Kid's in a very simple language and in a way the used to.

1- The first step here we want the kids to write how they can draw a rectangle in steps.

2- We will give them a hint by giving the first 3 steps for them.

3- Most of the kids will draw the rectangle neglecting the steps telling they finished.

4- We will go through the steps one by one.
