Empower: AI for Singapore has refined its curriculum and approach using two pilots that were conducted at Ngee Ann Polytechnic in Singapore in 2018/2019. Based on the feedback of students, and the experience of the team, we are now poised to scale across Singapore.
NGEE ANN POLY: LIGHTHOUSE PARTNER
We are really pleased to say that our pilot for Empower: AI for Singapore took place at Ngee Ann Polytechnic where 25 girls learnt basics of Artificial Intelligence from October ‘18 - February - 19. Our second pilot took place with 30 boys and girls from May ‘19 - Jul ‘19 at Ngee Ann Polytechnic.
Our lighthouse partner Ngee Ann Polytechnic will help us evaluate two pilots so that we are ready to scale this program across Singapore.
Stay tuned for updates on the program including comments by the students and profiles of entrepreneurs that talked to the girls about their AI journey.
Funding for the pilots in 2018-2019 was provided by the Farida and Javed Malik grant from 21C Girls, PayPal and by the donation of Caesar and Pooja Sengupta. We are grateful for their support.
