Why take part? 

The Experience AI Challenge, created by the Raspberry Pi Foundation in collaboration with Google DeepMind, guides young people under the age of 18, and their mentors, through the exciting process of creating their own unique artificial intelligence (AI) project. Participation is completely free.

Central to the Challenge is the concept of project-based learning, a hands-on approach that gets learners working together, thinking critically, and engaging deeply with the materials.

In the Challenge, young people are encouraged to seek out real-world problems and create possible AI-based solutions. By taking part, they become problem solvers, thinkers, and innovators. 

And to every young person based in the UK who creates a project for the Challenge, we will provide personalised feedback and a certificate of achievement, in recognition of their hard work and creativity. Any projects considered as outstanding by our experts will be selected as favourites and its creators will be invited to a showcase event in the summer. 

Resources ready for your classroom or club

Whether you’re introducing AI for the first time or looking to deepen your young people’s knowledge, the Challenge’s step-by-step resource pack covers all you and your young people need, from the basics of AI, to training a machine learning model, to creating a project in Scratch.

  • The creator guide supports young people throughout the Challenge and contains talking points to help with planning and designing projects

The pack offers a safety net of scaffolding, support, and troubleshooting advice.
