OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) -- The AIM Institute has teamed up with Omaha Public Schools to introduce English as a second language student to more technology. Students wrapped up their month-long projects Thursday at AIM.

The Director of Product Support and Operations, Erin Lasiter says this is not just about technology.

“The immersion with having to speak the English language that really helps them build their vocabulary. And technology just translates everything and so they have a common language even if their native language is not the same and that is in the technology and the code,” said Lasiter.

The students had the opportunity to build robots, basic circuitry, music programming and robotic programming.
