STEM Power, in partnership with the Computer Science and Software Engineering Department at UW-Platteville, is excited to offer high school students a dive into the world of Artificial Intelligence. This workshop, spanning approximately 30 hours in our cutting-edge computer lab, is designed to teach students interested in computer science how to interact with and program Artificial Intelligence. This workshop offers all level of expertise, from beginner to AP computer science students the opportunity to leverage AI to take your skills to the next level.

But the journey doesn't stop at Artificial Intelligence! Participants will also experience the vibrancy of college life—tour the campus, stay in residence halls (with a residential option), and enjoy meals in our dining facilities. This comprehensive program aims to ignite a passion for STEM, offer a glimpse into the collegiate experience, and inspire participants to envision their future in these dynamic fields. Join us for an unforgettable summer of learning, discovery, and personal growth in the fascinating world of AI.

About AI

Throughout the week, you will:

  • Discover how to better use the power of Artificial Intelligence as a tool to solve problems.
  • Learn how Artificial Intelligence, especially Large Language Models, work behind the screen.
  • Discuss and debate ethical issues related to Artificial Intelligence.
  • Engage in advanced programming challenges by designing Artificial Intelligence systems to autonomously compete in strategic games such as Connect 4.

Open to students entering grades 9-12. 

  • There are no pre-requisite courses or experiences required for this workshop. If you can turn on a computer, you are ready for this workshop. Be prepared to invest time and energy as you learn how to code. You can expect to work collaboratively with others.
  • Participants may choose the residential option and stay in campus residence halls or the commuter option.
