"Delayed SAT Results and a BONANZA OF VIRTUAL COLLEGE FAIRS"


I was ill, classes cancelled last weekend. I am ready to hop back on the horse. Having completed a visit to the CollegeBoard in NY, I came back with a few old tests which I shall give my students. Though the few results I got back from the August exam has shown some delightful results. We are enthused.

Montego Bay worked hard, we are happy about their results.


This week, I need you to read and invite yourselves to a ton load of virtual fairs posted on this site. Do not miss some of the lucrative offerings these colleges represent.

Project Mentorship for High School Students by MIT Graduates

Hi Sandra, Hope your academic year is off to a great start at Kingston 8! This is Aidan from Inspirit AI, the AI education program taught by Stanford and MIT graduate students for middle and high schoolers. I'm writing to inform you of our "AI + X" project tracks interdisciplinary AI project opportunities for students to apply an AI toolkit to music, arts, economics, healthcare and more under the guidance of one of our AI mentors. Artificial intelligence continues to transform countless industries and domains as new technologies develop in both STEM and the humanities. Our project-based curriculum allows students to learn AI fundamentals while exploring a domain that they're passionate about. A few examples include:
  • AI + Music: Music Recommender– learn to build recommendation systems that power Spotify, Netflix, and more!

  • AI + Arts: Sketch Recognition– explore the importance of sketch recognition and the algorithms behind it.

  • AI + Law: Criminal Justice– build models to detect racial bias in the criminal justice system.

  • AI + Healthcare: DNA Detectives– trace the origins and spread of COVID-19.

The application deadline is September 30th. Whether students enjoy computer science or not, they will gain an invaluable experience that combines technology education with social good– no prior programming experience needed. I’ve included a program blurb below that I would appreciate if you could share with families, students, or teachers who may benefit (grades 5-12). Thank you so much! Best, Aidan _____ Aidan Goltra Program Manager, Inspirit AI arg2198@columbia.edu
