STEM Design Lab
YDO is home to a hands-on science and engineering lab offering an array of opportunities for students to build valuable skillsets, design innovative projects, and become independent problem solvers.
Under the leadership of Doug Prime, YDO’s STEM Design Lab offers a range of project-based courses that, over time, help motivated students grow from first-time experimenter to self-directed innovator.
Seasonal courses include:
- 3D Printing & Prototyping
- Arduino Exploration
- Flight School (Remote Helium Airships)
- Halloween Animatronics
- Laser Light Show
- Magnetic Inventions
- Mini-Golf Course Design
- SeaMobiles (Underwater Robotics)
- TechCreation (Carnival Game Design)
- Toy Engineering
- Video Game Design
By participating in high-quality, hands-on STEM enrichment over a number of years, YDO students are advancing from first-time experimenters to self-directed innovators.
