STEM Summer Youth Institute
Youth Institute Features LEGO®, Robots, and Summer Fun
This summer, students entering grades 4-8 can give their critical thinking skills a work out while designing and building LEGO® robots. Visit local robotics companies, learn more about careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), and compete against others in these fun, hands-on courses taught by Oakton faculty.
Four-day courses in July and August run Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. at Oakton’s Des Plaines campus, 1600 East Golf Road. Fee for each course is $300.
