AIM Institute’s Amazing Tech Race Builds IT Skills with Fun Tech Challenges

July 28, 2017

AIM Institute is offering an exciting afternoon of tech-driven competition throughout downtown Omaha on Friday, Aug. 4. Now in its second year, the AIM Amazing Tech Race, sponsored by Cox Business, is a scavenger hunt consisting of challenges that will provide a unique and engaging learning experience for all ages.

Competitors will be split into teams of four and receive a map leading to 12 locations throughout downtown Omaha. The first team to move with the speed of technology and post a “selfie” on Twitter at each location will receive the most points for that stop. Additional tech challenges will be set up at the AIM Brain Exchange for competitors to earn bonus points. The winning team will be announced and awarded prizes at the end of the event.

Several businesses and startups that include Cox Business, First National Technology Solutions, Agape Red, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska, Drive Spotter, Union Pacific, Kaneko, No More Empty Pots, Fat Brain Toys, Appsky Labs and Mutual of Omaha will participate in the Amazing Tech Race by hosting an activity or a challenge.

Thanks to generous donations from our community and business partners, this event is free and open to the public. Teams with children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Registration is required for all participants.

When: Friday, Aug. 4, 2017, Noon to 4 p.m.
Where: AIM Brain Exchange, 1902 Howard St., Omaha
