49ers launch football and STEM Academy summer camp

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (KGO) -- The San Francisco 49ers are hosting their first-ever Football and STEM Academy summer camp program. The three-day camp began on Wednesday and runs through Friday.

"Today is the first day of 49ers Football and STEM Academy, which is a marriage of our STEM education program and our youth football program," said Jesse Lovejoy, director of STEM education and the 49ers Museum. "The experience for these kids is understanding how sports science and the concept of STEM are represented in football and vice versa."

In addition to discovering the important values of education and fitness, the 49ers say the camp will afford students with specially-designed activities that teach the fundamentals and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) while learning how to apply important life skills such as respect, responsibility, sportsmanship, and teamwork.
