The Malcolm Jenkins Foundation has expanded its partnership with Drexel University offering a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Design/Athletics, and Mathematics) summer program, called Young Dragons. Participating students will have the opportunity to examine technology and science through visual and performance arts and athletics, utilizing the methodology of the holistic STEAM approach.
Initially piloted with the ExCITe Center in 2016 as Summer STEAM, this summer camp collaboration offers middle school students living near Drexel’s campus the opportunity to participate in a six-week program with three-weeks of focused STEAM enrichment. This summer’s camp merges the STEAM curriculum piloted in 2016 with the established literacy and enrichment programs of the Lindy Center for Civic Engagement.
Young Dragons is open to students entering fifth through eighth grades. The 2019 session will be held at Drexel from Monday, June 17th to Thursday, July 25th.
