Have our students work together in an open, collaborative environment where they feel encouraged to take risks and complete original projects with the goal of preparing them for success in their future.
We strive to expose our students to STEAM education in order to help them discover new interests, talents and possible career paths.
Small groups, hands-on projects, a bully-free environment, and a collaborative teaching approach.

Nick spends most of his free time playing videos games, reading books and watching movies. At some point during his youth, computer graphics technology started to improve, making big impacts on movies and games. He was fascinated by the technology and wanted to learn more. He attended Purdue University in West Lafayette to study Computer Graphics Technology. After earning his Bachelors of Science and spending some time in the workforce he joined the DAE in 2012.
Lory graduated from SUNY Purchase with a BA in New Media. In 2014 she interned at The DAE, helping in the 3D Printing classes. While always having an interest in art & tech of all forms, she wished there were more opportunities as a kid to explore technology.
Now she helps out with the daily operations and creates graphics, posters and more.
