The Journey of AI Builds for Education
In 2019, a powerful vision was born: to revolutionize the world of STEM education by harnessing the potential of artificial intelligence. AI Builds for Education emerged as an AI-focused project by Steamlabs, driven by the shared belief that AI technology could transform the educational landscape through innovative, inclusive, and empowering learning experiences.
Our journey began with a deep commitment to creating meaningful connections to the content we developed and the organizations that would deliver it. We made it our mission to highlight diverse voices from equity-seeking groups, ensuring that our AI-driven tools and resources were rooted in authentic, real-world perspectives.
One of our first collaborations was with David Wolfman, an Indigenous chef from the Xaxli’p First Nation in British Columbia. Since 2020, we have worked closely with David to develop an AI that generates recipes based on his Indigenous culinary traditions and personal cooking practice. This AI has been showcased online through its own website, as well as on YouTube and at conferences and live events.
To further engage learners in exploring AI and its potential, we developed a free online neural network simulator tool and an accompanying workshop. Our delivery partners, including Digital Moment, Canada Learning Code, Amazon Future Engineer, and Science World BC, have brought this workshop to tens of thousands of students across the country.
As AI Builds for Education continues to grow, we remain steadfast in our commitment to fostering innovation, inclusivity, and collaboration in STEM education. By uniting passionate educators, skilled technologists, and diverse voices, we aim to create a brighter future for all learners, powered by the limitless possibilities of artificial intelligence.
