Making Connections to Classify (Launching Jan 2023)

Please note – this workshop will be launching in January 2023. Information on this page may change.

In Making Connections to Classify, students will use basic computer models for artificial intelligence (neural networks) to consider how A.I. classifies and the implications of scientific classifications.

This workshop has two different options for science content: classification of living things as plants, animals, or fungi (optimized for Grade 3) or classification of biomes (optimized for Grade 4). Both include discussions of concepts of classification.
