The Center's first Virtual Young Dragons program concluded last week. For this summer, we developed brand new STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) activities for West Philly middle schoolers based entirely in the virtual game world of Minecraft. Our campers collaborated online in learning how to build twisty mazes, roller coasters, and create music in Minecraft while exploring new gaming adventures.
Young Dragons is a partnership between Drexel's ExCITe Center and West Philadelphia Promise Neighborhood, providing innovative Summer STEAM activities developed specifically for middle school learners. All participants were rising 6th - 8th graders in the West Philadelphia Promise Zone.
