Futurelink was founded in 2015 out of a concept and a labor of love to bring insights from industry with a hands-on inquiry-based approach, educating young minds in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math).

We also have created many unique programs such as our STEAM infused educational Escape Room and Jr STEAM Certification to develop students’ critical thinking, problem solving and collaboration skills. Our approach is about bringing people, technology, and resources together. Our result focused training that combines critical thinking, problem solving and combination of 8 different learning style sets us apart from our competition.
