The Malcolm Jenkins Foundation is expanding its partnership with Drexel University offering a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Design, and Mathematics) infused 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. It will be held at Drexel from June 18th to July 26th from 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM.
Applications for this year’s Young Dragons’ program open on April 17th and will be made available through the following schools: Alain Locke Elementary, Morton McMichael School, Martha Washington Elementary, and the Science Leadership Academy.
