What We Do
We focus on art, digital media, making and STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) projects. Check out our regularly scheduled workshops.
You can borrow laptops and play videogames while in YOUmedia. You also can be certified to use cameras, an in-house production studio, drawing tablets, lighting equipment and 3D printers under mentor supervision.
