The STEAM in AI Multimodal Championship Inaugural Season 2024-2025

We are thrilled to introduce the first-ever STEAM in AI Multimodal Championship Season 2024-2025! This groundbreaking competition is specifically designed for middle and high school students to explore and learn AI in an affordable, engaging, and collaborative environment.

The STEAM in AI Multimodal Championship was created to fill a critical gap in educational opportunities for young learners interested in Artificial Intelligence. Unlike traditional Robotics competitions, which are often hardware and cost-intensive, or Hackathons designed for coders, this championship provides a unique, hands-on learning experience accessible to all students, regardless of their technical skills. Our goal is to democratize AI education and prepare students for the workforce of the future.

This event addresses a significant need for diversity in AI, as highlighted by various statistics. According to the World Economic Forum, there will be 97 million new AI jobs by 2025. However, the current representation of girls and diverse ethnicities in AI is alarmingly low. We believe that fostering diversity in AI is crucial to reducing bias and creating more inclusive and equitable technologies. By involving students from different backgrounds and with varied skills, we aim to bring multiple perspectives to the field of AI.

The STEAM in AI Multimodal Championship offers roles for everyone, from designers to project managers, ensuring that even students who are not math wizards or coding champions can see AI as a viable and exciting career path. This interdisciplinary approach highlights how AI intersects with all industries and roles, preparing students comprehensively for future careers.

Students will benefit immensely from this championship by gaining practical, hands-on experience in AI. This opportunity is designed to create “aha” moments that inspire and motivate the next generation to pursue high-paying, fulfilling careers in tech. By engaging students in middle and high school, we aim to prevent the loss of interest in tech careers, ensuring they remain enthusiastic about and committed to their future in AI.

Our championship is not just about learning AI; it’s about creating a community where students can collaborate, innovate, and envision a future where they play a pivotal role in the tech-driven world. We invite all students to join us in this transformative journey and become the AI leaders of tomorrow.

What is Multimodal AI?

Multimodal AI refers to the integration of multiple forms of data and input methods, such as text, images, audio, and video, to create more comprehensive and powerful AI models. This innovative approach allows for richer and more complex problem-solving, making it an exciting frontier in the field of AI. Participants in this challenge will get hands-on experience working with multimodal AI, preparing them for the future of technology and innovation.
