For Ages 8-11

Embark on an extraordinary 5-day adventure with our AI Primer Holiday Camp designed for imaginative minds ages 8-11! Created by our partners Press Start Academy and Doyobi, both of which are internationally recognised experts in 21st century skills (Obama Foundation, MIT Solve, World Economic Forum), this camp promises an unforgettable journey into the practical uses and ethics of artificial intelligence.



  • 2 hours of creative writing using AI and 1 hour of navigating the ethics of AI each day
  • Overcome obstacles by generating AI images
  • Use the generated AI images to craft a story
  • Learn the basic concepts of robotics and Artificial Intelligence
  • Explore how humans, machines and algorithms can interact in different imagined futures

All you need to know

1. Creative Writing: The Prince of Har

Escort a young prince in his sacred pilgrimage across the Deserts of Har with powerful tools and allies!

Armed with a magical tablet, you will be overcoming obstacles by generating AI images which manifest into usable tools in the story. Whether it is crossing broken bridges, surviving raging sandstorms or defeating ancient monsters, how you triumph in these scenarios is only limited by your imagination!

This program is designed to develop AI image generation skills on Midjourney with a focus on descriptive and creative writing skills, elements of art and strategic thinking. Students will be tasked with describing the items they generate, writing about how they overcome peculiar scenarios, as well as generating AI images from their story.

2. Ethics of AI: Rise of the Robots

Our interstellar travellers visit Solaris, the world where A.I. and robots appear to co-exist harmoniously with humans. A young boy James has called us to track the whereabouts of his trusty robot butler, Alfred. As the Doyobi Explorers investigate the duplicitous Company that has captured suspected sentient A.I., they think about

– the characteristics that differentiate robots and A.I.

– how A.I. and robots can positively or negatively impact society

– how data is used to train A.I. and experiment with creating their own A.I.

– the limitations of A.I. and debate why humans will continue to be essential.

What happens when we become overly reliant on technology?

Is it possible to have a world where A.I. goes solo, without human instruction?

We find out, as we traverse different communities, observe and discuss our findings on the ethics, benefits and dangers of embracing the use of A.I. and robots in our society.

Oh! The stuff you'll learn

  • Generate images using AI
  • Develop creative writing skills using AI-generated art as usable tools in the story
  • Describe AI-generated images and write about overcoming peculiar scenarios
  • Evaluate how robots & AI interact with our lives and societies
  • Think critically about technology and analyse the benefits and vulnerabilities of robotic and AI technology
  • Understand that we have agency to decisions about how we want to use technology

Life skills you'll learn

Logical Thinking
Systems Thinking


No lectures. No memorisation. No ONE right answer. Like real life, we're all about trying things out yourself, failing, figuring what went wrong & trying again. These are the skills & mindset that will last a lifetime and how we learn in real life. Let's get kids to learn how to learn. Because the kids who learn to learn become curious, inventive, resourceful human beings who solve real world problems to make a meaningful impact.

Your kid will love it.

Embark on an unforgettable journey into the practical uses and ethics of artificial intelligence!
