Step into the world of artificial intelligence through the fascinating lens of self-driving cars. Over 13 exciting weeks, you will build your own self-driving car, while exploring topics like ethics, justice, and fairness, that shape AI's impact on society.  Imagine a self-driving car at a busy intersection. How does the car respond? In this program, you'll grapple with questions of safety, values, and priorities, discovering how coding choices can ripple through society, either promoting fairness or inadvertently reinforcing biases.  Get ready to join a diverse community of young minds, regardless of your background, interests, or gender, as we embark on a journey to become AI Trailblazers and explore the intersection of technology, ethics, and innovation together.
