AI Family Challenge

Welcome to the
Curiosity Machine AI Family Challenge!

Your child is the future. So is artificial intelligence.

Join the world’s largest family technology program - the Curiosity Machine AI Family Challenge. Every year, the Curiosity Machine AI Family Challenge offers families around the world the opportunity to become technology innovators and entrepreneurs.

Children ages 8 to 15 and their families learn to use AI technologies and tools to solve problems in their communities around transportation, community-building, health, education, crime, safety, air and water quality, emotional well being, and the environment. They also learn how to communicate these ideas and translate them into a real business.
