The Yahng Discovery Center at a glance
The Yahng Discovery Center (YDC) is a vehicle for promoting high-quality science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and health (STEM-H) education, teaching, and outreach for all students, regardless of their identity, in grades K-16 as well as the community, at large. The YDC acts as a conduit between Berea College and the surrounding K-12 school districts, teachers, parents, and community members. We provide several STEM-H resources to Berea College students and the greater Berea area as an extension of the Berea College STEM-H faculty, staff, and students. We envision, and plan to carry out, a wide variety of programs to enhance STEM-H learning, to increase the breadth and depth of the quantitative and scientific literacy, and the exploration of dimensions of health. We also serve as a point of collaboration with internal and external partners on supported projects to improve STEM-H education and teaching.
