About Day of AI

The Day of AI is a free, full day of highly interactive learning designed to spark curiosity and ignite our future leaders, creators and innovators in the AI space. Our hands-on, creative and easy-to-teach activities will equip your students with the skills they need to thrive in a tech-driven world.


The Day of AI has been developed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), i2Learning, CS in Schools and UNSW to introduce students to the knowledge and skills they need to thrive in a world that will be powered by AI.

Last year, over 22,000 Australian students registered as part of a global movement.

So far, over 19,600 students around Australia have signed up for the 2023 Day of AI!


The Day of AI is a full day teaching program that can be taught any time in Term 2.
This year, Year 5 to Year 10 students across Australia are invited to participate in a day of creative, fun and hands-on activities to immerse themselves in AI.
Topics cover everything from the basics of what AI is, through to design and creation exercises using AI and understanding the benefits and potential risks.
The activities for the Day of AI are designed to be easily delivered by teachers with little to no background in computer science and digital technologies and to be accessible to students of all abilities.
To participate, schools will need an internet connection and at least one laptop or iPad per two students. If this is not possible under typical circumstances, contact us for additional support.


The Day of AI is designed to spark students’ curiosity about AI and computer science and to encourage them to develop the skills that will be critical to the future.
If students are able to see what AI involves and how many ways it applies to their lives, they are much more likely to consider it as a further study and career option.
When it comes to digital innovation, we want Australian students to become the inventors and creators of the future, not just the tech users!
All participating schools will be in the running for some great prizes. Find out more about the prizes here.

AI should be for everyone, which is why schools can
participate in the Day of AI for free.

The Day of AI is supported by the TDM Foundation, CS in Schools, the Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering and Teach for Australia.
