About This Course

Get into Python, machine learning, computer vision, and neural networks with the NVIDIA® Jetson Nano. You'll have a small computing powerhouse, a webcam, and the resources to push Python further than ever before. 

Train the machine to train itself, and it will be recognizing image features before you know it. Cat or croissant? Labradoodle or fried chicken? Healthy body or early cancer detection? As you progress through cutting-edge projects from both NVIDIA and iD Tech, you'll see how starting with the Jetson Nano for your machine learning journey can lead to insights and even breakthroughs in AI, robotics, and advanced engineering fields. From detecting objects in pictures and recognizing actions to creating code that can react to different visual stimuli, you'll build a project that will leave a lasting impression—and have the opportunity to gain an official certificate from NVIDIA to recognize excellence in your craft!

Scholarships available based on need.

Topics Covered

  • Understand key machine learning and computer vision concepts
  • Explore and develop programs incorporating Artificial Intelligence
  • Develop a portfolio to share with potential universities or employers
  • Leverage top-quality machine learning libraries with the Jetson Nano
  • Practice Python coding and distributed computing

Course Format 

This course is part of an intensive 2-week summer program running Monday through Friday (overnight at most locations with the option to stay the weekend within the two weeks). Your teen will learn in a lab on an inspiring university campus with a balanced daily schedule of assignment-driven workshops and outdoor/recreational activities. Courses are led by experienced instructors in a small-group setting. Learn more below. 
 


Sample Schedule

In this course, students will explore Python coding and neural networks with the NVIDIA® Jetson Nano™.

Here’s a sample of what each week in the course could look like! Please keep in mind that students will progress at varying paces; this is a general outline of key material and the overall student experience.

Begin exploring Python and the command line. Once students’ Nanos are set up, they’ll be ready to dive into neural networks and data collection. Students will build an image recognition program using custom Python code.

Now that they’ve established machine learning basics, students will push further with more projects and tutorials from NVIDIA and iD Tech, including training classification models. Use the ResNet-18 network to detect a cat or a dog from an image! To wrap up the course, students will develop a final project that they’ll submit to NVIDIA. Once it's approved, students will receive a certificate.

Portfolio-Boosting Diploma & Transcript

At the conclusion of your teen's course, they will receive an official iD Tech diploma and course transcript outlining the skills they learned over the session.

FAQ

iD Tech Academies offer intensive, assignment-driven programming workshops in various course topics including machine learning, virtual reality, game development, robotics, and more. Programs are designed to be a rigorous, pre-college experience that provides industry insights for teens interested in pursuing STEM fields in college or as a career.

All graduates will leave their academy with a portfolio tailored to their course topic - which is invaluable for college applications, internships, and jobs - along with their iD Tech Diploma. 

In the coming years, many companies like DeepMind and OpenAI hope to solve general artificial intelligence, which is a term for an AI that can learn and perform any task put in front of it. This breakthrough is likely still years in the future, but it has the potential to revolutionize how human beings interact with technology, the job market, and society in general.

In the shorter term, machine learning has practical business applications like analyzing large volumes of data, powering self-driving vehicles, and assisting medical diagnoses. As AI research advances, the number of tasks it can perform will only increase. Companies are already desperate for AI experts and aggressively hiring those with expertise in the field.

This course is taught by iD Tech instructors and features exclusive content from experts at NVIDIA.

Yes, this course is designed for beginner to advanced students. Our small class size ensures that each student receives individual attention and has the freedom to learn at their own pace.

Teens leave this academy with the NVIDIA® Jetson Nano™ and developer kit, specialized skills, a new network of friends and mentors, resilience, critical thinking opportunities, and official certification that stands out to admissions officers.

At the conclusion of the academy experience, teens will receive an official iD Tech diploma and course transcript outlining everything they learned during the program. They’ll also take home a USB with their course project files, along with access to installation and setup guides so they can continue working at their own pace.

Yes! You can register today for as little as $500 per student, and pay the balance in convenient monthly installments. 

You can also save by registering for multiple sessions (save $50 when you buy a second course in another topic or for a sibling), or by inviting friends to join at camp (earn a $25 credit for each new referral; your friends save $25 too). 

With our weeklong summer camps, teens can strike the perfect balance between STEM skill development and summer fun, experiencing collegiate life and learning on-campus at a prestigious university. (Overnight options available at select locations.)

Additionally, with online programs including private lessons, teen academies, and virtual camps, there is a program that fits your teen’s interests, skill level, goals, and importantly, schedule. Learn more.
