About Day of AI

"This experience for these students is honestly a life changer! You’ve shown them what the future can be for them … an experience like this can never be underestimated."

- Teacher

The Day of AI has been developed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), i2Learning, 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 a part of the global movement.

The Day of AI is a full day teaching program that can be taught anytime from the start of Term 2 to 1-May-2023.

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 to participate will need an internet connection and at least one laptop per two students. If this is not possible under typical circumstances, contact us for additional support.

AI should be for everyone, which is why schools can participate in the Day of AI for free. Schools can register to participate in the Day of AI 2023 here.

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

WHY GET INVOLVED

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.
