Build AI & ML Skills

Why attend our workshop?

AI will have a profound influence on our lives – both in our work and our free time. Teenagers are going to be the key players as AI develops over the next few years, and to be ready, it is imperative that they empower themselves with the right AI skills. With this proper knowledge, they can be successful and effective in their fields; AI is applicable in all areas. This workshop is especially for you if you are a teen who is curious about AI or if you already have some knowledge about AI/ML but want to delve deeper to develop practical skills.

Our workshops are specifically designed for students in Grades 7 to 12.

  • Learn AI/ML skills in a fun, interactive, engaging manner.
  • Develop skills like data analysis, coding, and problem-solving with ML that will help you stand out amongst others.
  • Connect with other teens who share similar interests.
  • No coding experience? No problem, we’ll cover all the basics as well as practical aspects.
  • Complete the workshop and receive certificate to boost your university application/career.

Creative Team

Vivek Pragada

I am a rising senior at Central Bucks High School South, PA. I founded AIforTeens in an attempt to propel the next generation of AI enthusiasts. I oversee all aspects of the organization. Primarily, I developed the curriculum and content in collaboration with the tech advisors, designed the workshops, and I teach all the workshops. I also developed the AIforTeens webpage. I am responsible for training all the Chapter Leads. It has been very gratifying to see so many teenagers locally and across the globe benefit by gaining working knowledge of AI and seeing the organization grow rapidly in its potential as well.

Lucas Mohr

I am a rising sophomore at Central Bucks High School South. Through my attendance in the AIforTeens workshops, I developed a strong foundation on machine learning and understood the necessity of AI. I have come to realize how essential it is that teens grow familiar with it. I joined AIforTeens organization to expand the program. I contact facilities like local libraries and education centers, that would be interested in hosting AI workshops and set up appointments, monitor emails, and information requests.

Meghna Vikram

I am a rising junior at Hagerty High School in Oviedo, Florida. I have been working with computers since the age of 10 and have won many awards from the US navy and other state awards. I attended the 3-Day online AIforTeens workshop and was very inspired to spread the word and help engage young minds share the love and passion I have for AI. I manage the Fb, Insta, Linked in pages and design new posts and stories. I also oversee a team of social media coordinators.

Pranav Singhal

I am a rising senior at North Penn High School, PA. I attended the AIforTeens workshop at AP Academy, and it rekindled my interest in Artificial Intelligence. I was the lead of Pennbrook news network and also volunteer with the IT dept in school. I believe it is critical to adapt to this new technology. I am invested in spreading the word about these workshops. I oversee a team of social media coordinators for managing the Fb, Insta, Linked In pages. I also develop creatives and stories in innovative ways.
