    Inspirit AI offers live online artificial intelligence programs taught by Stanford graduate students. In the 10-session bootcamp, students learn fundamental AI concepts and build a socially impactful project in a domain of their choosing. We offer multiple program dates in the Spring and Summer– Applications are open now at our website!

    Inspirit's AI Scholars program is a 10 session (25-hour) live online program that exposes high school students to fundamental AI concepts and guides them to build a socially impactful project in areas including law, healthcare, education, and more. Taught by our team of graduate students from Stanford University, students receive a personalized learning experience in small groups with a student-teacher ratio of 4:1. No coding experience is required, but more experienced students may be placed in an advanced cohort.


    Students work on a mentor-led group project in a domain of their choice and present their work to peers and instructors on the final day. Project domains have previously included healthcare, law, politics, finance, journalism, sustainability, autonomous driving, and more. They gain access to an online platform for continuous learning after the program, including additional projects in a variety of domains.

    Students learn about the AI research and industry work of the instructors in domains such as healthcare, transportation, and specialized chat applications. They receive guidance on pursuing a career in AI moving forward!

    Students go through workshops on preparing for top-ranked CS/AI programs in the US, gaining inspiration from successful Stanford admission essays and learning how to communicate their project experiences effectively.


    Students will receive preparation materials in advance to help them get the most out of the camp once they begin. This will include a Python and AI basics video series, and other readings.

    Students with programming/AI experience will cover advanced topics including Object Detection (e.g. used in applications like Amazon Go), Generative Models (e.g. used to create anime characters), and advanced Neural Networks. They will also work on a project with more intensive coding prerequisites.
