The NSF funded projects FIRST-HEP and IRIS-HEP strives to create a highly visible model and framework for future software training evolution within the U.S. and international HEP (High Energy Physics) communities. Its plan includes a dedicated outreach activity on  software training to the local Puerto Rico STEM teachers. The most effective way for FIRST-HEP to reach K-12 students and parents is to train teachers in the basics of computing and its vital role in science. To achieve above goal a two 2-day workshop is organized for K-12 teachers at UPR Mayaguez to teach basics of Machine Learning. This is 4th workshop in a series that began in April 2019. We expect this will encourage the teachers and school authorities to consider incorporating the basic software carpentries into the high school curriculum.
