The South Fayette Township Library and Bridgeville Township Library are public libraries serving the South Fayette and Bridgeville areas. The libraries offer youth programs that cover a wide range of interest, including programming and robotics.


Prior to the 2018 World Artificial Intelligence Competition for Youth (WAICY) on July 28th, 2018, the ReadyAI team interacted with children at both libraries for a few sessions. The sessions were mainly in the format of demos where instructors held guided discussions among participants for 30 minutes before demonstrating AI-in-a-Box™ and having students experience the toolkit hands-on.

Some of the students at the demo session went on to participate in the WAICY workshop hosted by ReadyAI from July 24th to 27th, 2018.
