Uplink Summer Camps & After-School Programs Receive Accreditation Trustmark
STEM Accredited Brand Experience - Uplink

Uplink, a network of community-focused esports training centers & entertainment venues, has received the 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’s 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 

“We are extremely excited to be awarded the Accreditation,” says Derek Rodner, CEO & co-founder of Uplink. “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, it also validates our education components built into our summer camps and after-school programs.”
