AIM Institute Celebrates National Trio Day
OMAHA, Nebraska (Nebraska) — The leading tech non-profit here at Metro has hosted dozens of Omaha youths for some high-tech fun as part of their National Trio Day celebration on Saturday.
National Trio Day is a celebration of federal trio programs, outreach programs, and student service programs designed to identify and provide services to disadvantaged individuals. The AIM Institute hosted a Brain Exchange event where students could take part in tech activities including a drone obstacle course where they could challenge each other to see who could make it faster.
“Today our goal is to inspire children to a profession in science and technology. We hope to inspire students with hands-on activities with a very basic technology background,” said Charles Kaup, Aim Upward Bound Program Manager. “You will see this through robotics in the target building. Really inspire students to use the information they are learning today and apply it to their education to see where they can go.”
