February 21, 2023
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is using his fame to help provide an unforgettable learning experience for kids who need it most.
The basketball legend appeared on “The Jennifer Hudson Show” and brought up a project he’s very passionate about. Said Kareem, “We’re trying to get kids interested in science, technology, engineering, and math,” otherwise known as STEM.
He’s partnered with the Los Angeles Unified School District to send kids to camp, with activities focused on science experiments, research, astronomy, and more.
The curriculum was developed by UCLA and NASA, and campers get a hands-on, immersive experience learning about subjects in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics for five days and four nights in the Angeles National Forest.
