STEM education components and Online Safety Training core to Uplink Summer Camps & After-School Programs
PHILADELPHIA, PA, UNITED STATES, September 5, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — Uplink Studios, pioneers of community-based esports for every generation, has received the STEM.org Accreditation trustmark. STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications.
“Uplink Studios’ inherent role in the educational ecosystem (both direct & indirect) has placed it in the unique, but challenging position of leading others by example, while striving for continued improvement of its program in the ever-changing, highly competitive 21st century global economy”, said Andrew Raupp, Founder and Executive Director of STEM.org.
“We are extremely excited to be awarded the STEM.org Accreditation,” says Derek Rodner, CEO & co-founder of Uplink Studios. “Our mission is to not only make better gamers, but better humans. This trustmark validates our model that not only helps kids learn the soft skills needed to successfully navigate through life, but our education components built into our summer camps and after-school programs.”
