The Codeavour 2021 Competition provides an excellent opportunity for children to explore the world of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML). 

Whether your child is a newbie or a seasoned coder, the Codeavour Competition gives children from ages 7 to 18 years a chance to create projects on their innovative ideas to make the world a better place. This year, we are proud to announce that STEM for Kids is collaborating with Codeavour as a Training Partner.

We have created a unique online crash course on AI and ML for students who have no prior experience with AI or ML or even coding. This course will help kids of any age to learn AI and ML. While Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning may sound highly complicated to learn, with an easy-to-use Pictoblox interface, children can easily understand the fundamental concepts of AI like computer vision, face detection, optical character recognition and machine learning.
