Discover STEM with LEGO!

Since 2015, Fernbank LINKS has invited rising 4th-8th grade students to participate in our annual LEGO Robotics Summer Camp! For 5 days, students will learn how to strategize, design, build and program robots for the FIRST LEGO LEAGUE (FLL) competition! At the end of the camp, teams of 2-3 students will compete in a tournament for special trophies built by our own camp counselors!

On average these small groups of students in a week perform as well as, if not better than, real Dekalb FLL teams of ten students do in months. 

The goal of our camp is to provide students with the skills necessary to join FLL teams so they will become the STEM Leaders of tomorrow! Over 80% of students that attend our camps have been accepted to school teams, and our counselors are happy to provide recommendations for your children. So what are you waiting for? Sign up for the LEGO Robotics Camp today!
