One of the major projects of the Foundation is Ayb School, where most advanced educational technologies are developed based on national ideas, building a model of the 21st-century Armenian school. Ayb High School teaches the internationally recognized Araratian Baccalaureate (AB) program, which was benchmarked by Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE) and the Institute of Education (IoE), University College London (UCL), to be comparable to UK GCE A Level and US AP qualifications. Ayb High School has a tuition reimbursement system.
In collaboration with the Central Bank of Armenia, Ayb opened Dilijan Central School, which belongs to the big family of Ayb Schools and is the first schooling project realized by external order and funding. The school consists of elementary and middle components and serves as an innovative educational hub not only for Dilijan but for the whole region. The school has also a workshop laboratory, fab lab, created jointly with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA. The fab lab is equipped with an array of flexible computer-controlled tools and materials that enable the application of innovative technologies in various fields of science.
Project-based learning clubs are the pulse of the community in the family of Ayb schools. They find comprehensive solutions to the most pressing problems we encounter in real life. Among the important Ayb programs are also the 11 AybLabs that create learning environments for students to explore and master a particular subject in practice. Of no less importance are the two fab labs (smart workshop laboratories, opened jointly with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA) that enable the fabrication of “almost anything.”

I really wanted to participate in the Legostart competition, because since I was little, whenever I saw robots on TV, I dreamed of creating a robot myself one day.
I learned about the competition from my coach, Harut, and decided to participate. Among the various aspects of robot design, I find the process of developing novel mechanisms and incorporating details to be particularly enthralling. I also have a deep love for football and want to create robots that play football as a team in the future.
Khan Academy helped me improve my knowledge, revise what I know, make new friends, and experience healthy competition while studying.
