Acorn Aspirations in partnership with London Technology Week, Lean Startup Summit and Tech London Advocates is running a 2-day hackathon/start-up style event where young people aged 12-19 will collaborate with mentors from London’s TechCity community to develop tech start-ups and artificial intelligence solutions that tackle social problems in their local communities and worldwide.
#AcornHackAI will unlock young people’s entrepreneurial potential by inspiring them to get creative with coding and machine intelligence technology, as well as attend masterclass workshops in digital marketing, branding, APIs, lean UX and Business Model Canvas.
The purpose of this event is to equip young people with the tools that will enable them to become change-makers and entrepreneurs of their own lives.
Why Artificial Intelligence Hackathon for Teens?
Why not? Technology is disrupting lives at every aspect of our society.
At Acorn Aspirations we believe teenagers should be part of this technological transformation and have an opportunity to create technology alongside the most innovative minds and tech creators. Having piloted a new and disruptive method of education, we are convinced that young people learn best when they are equipped with the right tools and environment that nurture their creativity.
We design learning experiences that nurture entrepreneurship, innovation and creativity in young people. We teach them the way schools cannot. We develop future leaders – leaders that will be making tomorrow’s world a better place. We prepare young people for the jobs that do not yet exist. Young people that learn through our programmes WILL BE the ones to create those jobs.
