World ORT’s YOUniversity Center of Excellence in Nahariya was one of several Kadima Mada schools visited during the ORT America Next Gen Mission.
YOUniversity offers hands-on courses in aerospace, physics, forensics, architecture, robotics and astronomy, among others. Each subject is taught by experts in the field.
ORT America Next Gen Mission participants were separated into two groups, in which they observed scientific tests performed by the faculty, viewed combative robots made from scratch, and engaged in leadership activities that involved aerodynamics and physics with tools the students had constructed.
The after-school program helps students become more involved with science, technology, engineering and math courses and broadens their technical skills. YOUniversity serves students of various backgrounds, including those with special needs.
