AIM in the News

Photo of students at ISTE 2019

AIM's robotics and engineering program was highlighted in EdTech Digest's recap of the ISTE conference held in Philadelphia in June. Author Mike Gura writes: "AIM Academy – so great to see a school this is “All In” with robotics. I chatted with Doug Markgraf, a full time robotics teacher there and with Robert Ervin, Director of Robotics and Engineering for the school. I had to be mindful of the very powerful, full-size robot prowling the floor, built by the school’s FIRST team and got a close look at their android phone powered robot built by their FIRST Tech Challenge team."

Why AIM?

"I love the arts-based programs that students experience at AIM. Students are able to access the curriculum in a variety of ways that helps them make sense of abstract concepts. Through the arts, students are able to create fascinating projects, and learn the material in a way that stays with them."

Sonia Vosbikian - Lower School Teacher
