Machine Learning for Kids puts IBM’s AI technologies in the hands of children so they can learn about AI by playing, experimenting and making with them. It was created as a volunteer activity, initially for Dale’s own use, but this was incrementally scaled - with a variety of approaches used to enable and encourage use by both IBM locations and schools around the world.

This presentation describes some of the lessons learned doing this. It describes how you could increase the impact of the volunteer work that you do and ways to turn something that you do in a single local school into something that can be used around the world.
