What will a theme-cluster look like? A deep dive into Seckinger High School’s AI curriculum

Gwinnett County Public Schools, in its quest to place students in the workforce and college with cutting edge concepts, announced its newest concept in February — a cluster with curriculum themed to prepare students for careers in artificial intelligence.

GCPS Executive Director of Innovation & Program Improvement Babak Mostaghimi said Seckinger cluster schools’ curriculum is not the precursor to Skynet and a generation of Terminators. The study of AI, in a broad sense, deals with the simulation of intelligent behavior in computers, including robotics. Mostaghimi said the Seckinger curriculum is focused on practical preparation for students who will be graduating into an AI-driven world in 2030.
