A.I. Subway Track Detection:
'Operation Train Security'
Spurned on by a call to action to improve subway safety from the MTA, the Middle School cohort tackled machine learning through object detection as they trained an image classifier to delineate between humans and debris.
Their engineering goal was to create a cheap, sustainable solution that makes traveling on the subway safe for pedestrians and allows conductors to avoid potential hazards.
Tools utilized: Raspberry Pi, TensorFlow, Teachable Machine, Python, Raspbian
Learners created graphics and programmed an app based on a country of interest.
Students researched and curated an informational essay based on their country. They used this information to populate their apps, which were displayed in the form of QR codes on a paper mache globe the students built, painted, and texturized.
Portfolio school: Unit 1 showcase
"The ability to identify ones own strengths and weaknesses is a crucial part of becoming a lifelong learner that thrives and innovates. Your children recognize the environmental factors that support their ability to learn, build, and create."
Sustainable, Open-source, & MAker/DIY solutions for saving the BEEs!
