Mission & Conception
We offer online and in-person sessions that illustrate the applications of AI through creative projects involving subjects like computational artistry and natural language processing. Our ultimate goal is to inspire the next generation of thinkers who will be able to fulfill tech jobs in the future.
AImagination was founded in 2018 with the mission to ignite curiosity and increase diversity in STEM, targeting kids from underrepresented communities. AImagination aims to educate students in elementary and middle schools about AI (artificial intelligence) through unique STEAM-based workshops.
The three founders came from vastly different backgrounds, geographic settings, and high schools. However, they all noticed a lack of engaging STEAM education in their local communities. After meeting at Princeton AI4All’s inaugural summer program, they were inspired to initiate a program addressing these issues in STEM.
