“About 300 students primarily from the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area attended the Girls Computing League’s second-ever Artificial Intelligence Summit at the National Air and Space Museum’s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly on Oct. 6 and 7.

The summit’s organizers, most of whom are still high school students themselves, hoped to make an impact with the two-day event beyond its direct participants.

In addition to introducing middle and high school students to artificial intelligence with speeches from professionals in the field as well as hands-on activities, Girls Computing League presented donations to four Fairfax County schools as well as the D.C. Housing Authority so that they can start coding clubs.”
