Ages 8+
MISSION OBJECTIVE

With a basic understanding of AI, students will now learn about Machine Learning (AI), a subset of AI that focuses on machines and very specific tasks.

Now that Piperbot and Pip have PAL up and running they are ready to explore. Surprisingly they have discovered that the ships controls are damages and can't be used on the flightdeck. PAL, however, has a new idea and suggests that using a camera as a sensor he could steer the ship based on the movements of Piperbot's head so that they could get going by using the principles of Machine Learning.
