In the 2020 AI for Good Challenge, Australian high school students are supported by their teachers to learn the basic concepts of Artificial Intelligence. Equipped with this learning, they then embark on a design-thinking challenge to dream up a creative way that AI could be used to make a difference in the world. The challenge is about understanding AI and innovating concepts for how this technology could be used (students don’t need to actually code AI), so it is a great learning experience that all high school teachers and students can engage with! 

Free Teacher Resources

Teachers can engage with loads of curriculum aligned resources and professional learning to help you run great classes and support your students to learn about AI and thrive in the challenge.

National Competition

Students submit their AI concepts to an Australia wide competition with state and national finals. The challenge is designed in a way to engage all high school students (not just the techie students!), with easy to access learning and great prizes up for grabs!

Future Focused Learning

Students will learn huge amounts about AI, which is one of the most exciting technologies in the world today! This learning supports them to be innovators and builders of technology, rather than just being users of technology.

REGISTER YOUR SCHOOL for 2020 NOW

As an Australian teacher, here is what you need to know.

Who can be involved in the challenge?

The challenge is for Australian high school students in Years 7-12. They can enter their submissions in teams of 2-3 students. It is designed for all high school students, not just those who usually engage with technology opportunities. Submissions are closed for 2019, but you can register your school now for 2020.

How

Teachers, the first step if you want your students to be involved is that you need to register your school or organisation (you can do this right now on this page!). The next step is that you can access an awesome bank of resources to help run some great classes with your students (and these are all on the Teacher Resources page). Step Three is that your students need to submit their ideas through this site before the 21st June, 2020 on the 'Submit Your AI Solution page'. If your students make it through to the state or national finals we will be in touch!

What

Equipped with all the great learning that you support your students with, they need to submit an AI concept that makes a difference under the categories of AI for Earth, Humanitarian Action or Accessibility. They only need to submit a concept, they don't need to build or code an AI. This is all explained in much more detail on the Teacher Resources' and 'Submit Your AI Solution' pages.

When

You can register your school now, and we expect most schools will run their AI classes (as many or as few as they like), during Term Two of 2020. All submissions need to be entered by the 21st June, and state and national finals are in Term Three.

Teachers, register your school now!
