Michigan State University and Indiana University, in partnership with the Young Adult Library Services Association, the Capital Area District Library in Lansing, Michigan, the San Diego Central Library in San Diego, California, and the Carroll County Public Library in New Windsor, Maryland will develop an artificial intelligence (AI) literacy program for youth in underserved communities. The project will engage youth from economically underserved communities with core knowledge about AI to codesign AI technologies for local industries in their communities. Activities will include understanding youth and how they conceptualize AI, developing AI literacy programs and materials, running the AI literacy programs in the three partner libraries, and developing and disseminating the findings and materials. The project will develop publicly available open-source AI education modules and webinars to build the capacity of library staff to run their own AI literacy programs.
