Google Providing Online Courses For Computer Science For Teens

Tech Kidz Africa in partnership with Google and Young Stripes have organised online courses that will involve Artificial intelligence, animation and online safety. The courses are for beginners only, and will aim to help students achieve a certain degree of problem solving, an essential skill for life.

Students will be allowed to study the design of animation to a level that allows them to make informed decisions on the development and analysis of software and hardware used to generate entertaining characters. There is a significant human side to computer science as well because students will feel adept enough to create characters based off of their own perspectives and ideologies.

The increasing popularity of the internet makes it important for everyone to understand cyber safety and why is it important to stay safe online. There is hardly any question left whose answer is not available online. It is for this reason that the internet has become a necessity.

Every new advancement of technology is followed by hidden dangers and threats associated with its use. The Internet is also not an exception. It has its pros and cons too. Since it is accessed by children as well, it is vital that teens are educated on its dangers.

With AI becoming a ubiquitous term in this day and age, it can be defined as a computer system used to solve complex problems that are beyond the capacity of the human brain. In this sense, AI harnesses the power of machines to solve complex problems that the human mind cannot reach.

The Google courses will aim for students to understand the strength and connotations associated with AI, especially now with the Kenyan economy being part of such an unpredictable tech landscape.
