Computer Science School Outreach
The pandemic has made most of our School’s traditional outreach activities impossible, and even with schools reopening, regulations for visits will remain restrictive for the foreseeable future. With a team of motivated volunteers, we have created a brand new school outreach activity specifically suitable for remote delivery.
The workshop gives a playful introduction to binary classification and a more in-depth interactive exploration of artificial neural networks. For anyone interested, here are the online activities to try out for yourself:
- Alien Classification: tiny.cc/aliens1 - Can you find the rule that distinguishes the friendly from the hostile aliens?
- Exploring neural networks: tiny.cc/playground-worksheet
- Take-home exercises using Google’s Teachable Machine: tiny.cc/alien-worksheet
Credits for creating the activities to: Emma Dean, Matthew Fell, Tudor Jianu, Elektra Kypridemou, Joseph Livesey, and Benjamin Smith
