Innovation Center to Host ‘Day of AI’ Event as Part of Computer Science Education Week

St. Vrain Innovation Center building

The Innovation Center of St. Vrain Valley Schools is set to host a Day of AI event on December 2 from 2-5:00 p.m. as part of this year’s Computer Science Education Week. The event will feature a variety of activities designed to engage, educate, and inspire attendees about artificial intelligence (AI). Students, parents, educators, and AI enthusiasts are all invited to be part of this unique experience.

During the event, participants will explore various facets of AI through interactive stations, including AWS DeepRacer, Google’s Quick Draw Game, Generative Art, and an introduction to ChatGPT. Sessions will cover topics such as “Demystifying AI,” and attendees will discover St. Vrain’s initiatives in AI education. Hands-on STEM activity stations and the Future-Ready Innovation Mobile Lab will be available for all ages to explore, and the evening will conclude with an outdoor drone light show.

A Day of AI also coincides with the World Artificial Intelligence Competition for Youth (WAICY), the world’s largest AI competition for youth, hosted by the Innovation Center this year. Attendees can observe students present their solutions for real-world problems using AI. Participation is still open for interested competitors, with comprehensive guides and submission details available online. Last year’s Innovation Center’s FishNET team earned the gold medal in the World Artificial Intelligence Competition for Youth for their innovative work in fish conservation. This year, students are able to compete in two distinct competition tracks:

  • Generative Art Competition: Participants are invited to create AI-driven art with this year’s theme, The Joys of Family.
  • LLM Track Competition: This challenge is focused on utilizing AI as a service, encouraging students to explore and harness the capabilities of large language models (LLMs) in practical, innovative applications.
