Pre-College Programs and Opportunities

  • Stanford University AI Program

    My name is Adeesh, and I’m the Program Head at Inspirit AI, a pre-college artificial intelligence program developed and taught by a team of Stanford PhD students. I’m reaching out to invite your students to apply for our upcoming program this winter!

    AI Scholars Live Online exposes students to fundamental AI concepts and guides them to build socially impactful projects in a domain of their interest such as healthcare, robotics, finance, sustainability. This past summer and fall over 900 high school students completed projects such as tracing the origins of COVID-19 or predicting bias in legal decision-making. We'd love to invite your students to apply for our Winter Break and Spring Semester program. Students may apply here by October 31st.

    I’ve linked our brochure and included a description of the program below. I'd really appreciate it if you could share this information with your students in grades 9-12. We’d be thrilled to work with them!
