About the AI Start project

The project was launched in 2022 to help educators launch AI technology clubs. In the first year, more than 300 applications were received from 65 regions of Russia, and a year later their number doubled.

As part of the project, teachers are trained in a professional development course with the issuance of a standard certificate from Moscow State Pedagogical University, a program for the circle classes and all the necessary materials for their implementation (methodological recommendations, presentations, practical tasks), information, expert and methodological support during the implementation of circle activities are provided , as well as the opportunity to receive grant support.

Teachers participating in the project will undergo training in the advanced training course “Artificial Intelligence: Theory and Methods of Teaching in Basic and High School” (72 academic hours) with the issuance of a standard certificate from Moscow State Pedagogical University.
