AI-Enhanced e+STEAM Club: Pioneering Personalised Youth Development

The e+STEAM Club's challenge is to revolutionise youth development with AI, inviting participants to infuse AI into the existing model to recruit and engage members locally and globally. AI can personalise learning, foster collaboration and creativity, and enhance critical thinking. Online platforms, VR/AR, and gamification support this infusion.

Topics for Discussion:

  • Personalised Learning Pathways: Using AI to create customised learning journeys.

  • AI-Powered Member Engagement: AI-driven engagement through chatbots and notifications.

  • Social Media Analysis for Recruitment: Using AI to identify potential members.

  • AI-Enhanced Coding Challenges: Integrating AI into coding challenges.

  • AI-Driven Resource Recommendations: AI recommendations for resources and projects.

These discussions aim to enhance the club's impact on youth development and recruitment. Primary school participants engage in robotics, coding, hydroponics, collaborative storytelling, and music exploration.

The hackathon will take place in a blended format. Address for onsite participation: Corner Ave Des Dauphin and Ave Des Cordonier
