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 elementary and middle school students living near Drexel’s campus the opportunity to participate in a six-week program focused on STEAM enrichment. This summer’s camp merges the STEAM curriculum and enrichment program of Lindy Center for Civic Engagement.

Young Dragons is open to students entering fifth through eighth grades. It will be held at Drexel from June 17th to July 25th from 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM.   

Applications for this year’s Young Dragons’ program are currently open and will be made available through the following schools: Alain Locke Elementary, Morton McMichael School, Martha Washington Elementary, and the Science Leadership Academy. Contact Zoe Jamison for questions regarding the program application.
