Malcolm Jenkins, Drexel University launch S.T.E.A.M. program

Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins has paired his foundation with Drexel University to launch an innovative day camp catering to a unique education for middle school students.

Summer S.T.E.A.M, which was held from July 11-15, aimed to inspire young teenagers in the fields of science, technology, engineering, arts, athletics and math. Jenkins himself partook in one of the athletic modules on the final day, exploring the link between athletics, video games and virtual reality.

"Kids want to learn and be exposed to unique experiences and Summer S.T.E.A.M. allows them to re-imagine education by reshaping how and where learning occurs," Jenkins said. "By offering this program, we want to spark, nurture and inspire a lifelong interest in the STEM disciplines and show them how education can lead the way to new opportunities and success in life."

The pilot program seemed to be a success, as The Malcolm Jenkins Foundation plans to partner with Drexel University to offer Summer S.T.E.A.M. again next summer.
