AIM, a not-for- profit organization dedicated to changing lives through technology, announced today that it has formed a pilot partnership with Liberty Elementary School to bring students to AIM’s Brain Exchange once a week for classes on robotics.
The Brain Exchange is home to free science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) learning experiences for youth ages 7-17. With advanced technology knowledge at their fingertips, Liberty students will have a place outside of the classroom to learn and grow, in addition to learning in school.
“As a former music and technology teacher, I’m so excited to see Liberty partner with The Brain Exchange to give our students this amazing off-campus opportunity. The outlook is positive and experiences are almost endless,” said Liberty Elementary assistant principal, Jeff Rotherham.
“The partnership shows the dedication and passion of the community to create technology leaders of the future. We are delighted to be working with the students at Liberty on a regular basis,” said Victoria Novak, vice president of Strategic Partnerships at AIM.
AIM is working to expand the program in 2017 to offer more classes to additional organizations.
Aside from the partnership with Liberty Elementary, AIM Brain Exchange holds free classes on the second and fourth Saturdays of every month. Classes are open to children and teens ages 7-17. Pre-registration is required.
AIM Brain Exchange is a tech learning space located at 1902 Howard Street in Omaha, NE. The facility is home to free, STEAM learning experiences for youth, ages 7-17. Its programming includes codeCraft Explorers, bi-weekly workshops that introduce youth to technology, and codeCraft Masters, bi-weekly “deep dive” sessions in coding and robotics for more advanced learners.
