The AID-STEAM BIP programme is a comprehensive initiative that integrates AI into STEAM education through physical and virtual learning experiences. The project will use real-time, user-friendly AI technology in workshops, seminars and interactive labs to teach a wide range of STEAM subjects and to promote ethical, creative and critical thinking. There are also plans for cultural evenings, film screenings and discussions on AI technology and documentaries. Students will visit top tech companies, research labs and other organisations to learn about real-world AI applications and industry practices. These activities will take place throughout the duration of the project. They will create a dynamic learning environment.

Main topics addressed

  • Introduction to AI-Enhanced STEAM education: Exploring AI's diverse roles, challenges, risks, and innovations
  • Personalised learning in STEAM education based on AI
  • AI-Driven solutions for sustainable innovation and real-world impact
  • Intelligent assessment and feedback
  • Ethical considerations, challenges, future possibilities, and implications
