Till: Movie Screening | March 3 | 6 p.m. | Welcome Center Auditorium | Greeley Campus
Aims is hosting a free movie screening of Till (2022). Till is a profoundly emotional and cinematic film about the true story of Mamie Till-Mobley’s relentless pursuit of justice for her 14-year-old son, Emmett Till, who, in 1955, was lynched while visiting his cousins in Mississippi. In Mamie’s poignant journey of grief turned to action, we see the universal power of a mother’s ability to change the world.

Tactile: Ceramics Art Show | March 7 | 4:30 - 6:30 p.m. |Ed Beaty Hall Gallery | Greeley Campus
Come to an art reception for the latest Ed Beaty Hall Art Gallery show, “Tactile: Ceramics," featuring work by Michael Lemke. The artist describes the work as “attempts to convey the importance of touch and the process of pottery making, as well as the experiential properties of working in the studio.” He says, “Another passion is marine life, so including textures and colors that refer to the coral reef is a natural fit for my work.”

Engineering Technology Open House | March 8 |5:30-7:30 p.m. | Applied Technology and Trades Center | Greeley Campus
Explore opportunities in industrial technology, engineering, manufacturing, robotics and energy. Everyone is welcome to attend. Learn about Aims programs, find out how and when to get started, and connect with industry business leaders. You'll also find demonstrations in our learning lab space and have the opportunity to complete an activity. The Community Lab is a space where people can explore, expand, and discover design elements, small-scale fabrication, electronics, craftwork, and the fusing of seemingly-unrelated ideas.

Ag Day Open House | March 21 |5-7 p.m. |Platte Building | Fort Lupton Campus 
The Ag Day open house is a free, family-friendly event. This is an opportunity to learn about local agriculture, tour the Aims Agricultural Sciences greenhouse and facilities, and participate in hands-on activities with community partners.
