AIM, a not-for- profit organization dedicated to changingÂ lives through technology, announced today that it has formed a pilot partnership withÂ Liberty Elementary School to bring students to AIM’s Brain Exchange once a week forÂ classes on robotics.
The Brain Exchange is home to free science, technology, engineering, art and mathÂ (STEAM) learning experiences for youth ages 7-17. With advanced technologyÂ knowledge at their fingertips, Liberty students will have a place outside of the classroomÂ 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 withÂ The Brain Exchange to give our students this amazing off-campus opportunity. TheÂ outlook is positive and experiences are almost endless,” said Liberty ElementaryÂ assistant principal, Jeff Rotherham.
“The partnership shows the dedication and passion of the community to createÂ technology leaders of the future. We are delighted to be working with the students atÂ Liberty on a regular basis,” said Victoria Novak, vice president of Strategic PartnershipsÂ at AIM.
AIM is working to expand the program in 2017 to offer more classes to additionalÂ organizations.
Aside from the partnership with Liberty Elementary, AIM Brain Exchange holds freeÂ classes on the second and fourth Saturdays of every month. Classes are open toÂ 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,Â NE. The facility is home to free, STEAM learning experiences for youth, ages 7-17. ItsÂ programming includes codeCraft Explorers, bi-weekly workshops that introduce youthÂ to technology, and codeCraft Masters, bi-weekly “deep dive” sessions in coding andÂ robotics for more advanced learners.
