AI4ALL (Artificial Intelligence for All) is a rigorous and supportive 2 week summer program that serves as an entry point for computer science focused on artificial intelligence and machine learning for current 9th and 10th-grade Michigan residents. This program is in partnership with the National AI4All Organization. Become a part of the next generation of AI technologists, thinkers and leaders! This program will be held virtually for the Summer 2021 Season.

AI4ALL scholars will explore a broad spectrum of computer science topics focused on artificial intelligence. Applicable science and math concepts are taught as they relate to the student’s projects.
We have a curriculum that changes year-to-year based on scholar and instructor feedback. Each year scholars can anticipate engaging in challenging projects that are specifically designed to impart essential skills that lead to success in the Engineering field. During summer 2020, students learned about a number of topics including natural language processing, object detection in sports and medicine, image filtering and indexing, and much more! Students then implemented their own research on their favorite topics with the help of U-M computer science graduate students.
At Engineering OnRamp, we recognize that success in the College of Engineering depends on students having a wide array of skills that go beyond math and science knowledge. EO101 is a curriculum developed by our staff to discuss both hard and soft skills that are necessary for academic, social and personal success and persistence in a competitive institution of higher education, like the University of Michigan. Topics include persistence, self-advocacy, finance, college admissions, emotional wellbeing, and much more! Specific topics are chosen based on program content, grade level and are included in all of our programs.
Alumni, Faculty, & Student Engagement
Throughout the program students will get a taste of their potential future with Michigan Engineering. Panel discussions with current undergraduate students, lectures from Faculty about their research, and presentations by Michigan Engineering Alumni about their careers in their field are built into the programming.
Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, our team has made the public health informed decision to provide our summer programs virtually for the Summer 2021 Season. Student safety is at the forefront of our priorities. Last summer we were able to host robust virtual programming with hands-on at home projects led by our instructors. Check out highlights from last year HERE.
Programming will be a combination of synchronous virtual sessions with hands-on engineering kits provided to students. Program hours are from 9am to 1pm Monday through Friday with optional programming from 2pm-3pm. Students must be committed to attend all sessions and can not participate in overlapping programming.
