INNOVATION FOR COMMUNITY
All of DHF’s programs are based out of the Digital Harbor Foundation Tech Center, a community innovation site and education beta lab in Baltimore City. The Digital Harbor Tech Center is located at 1045 Light Street in Baltimore. The Tech Center is a place for exploration and discovery. We feature programming for after school tech clubs, programs in web and mobile development, a maker space, and labs in which to beta and experiment with new technologies. Like us on Facebook and keep up with the schedule of events — as well as the great stuff being learned and made — everyday at the Tech Center!
High School After School Program
The Digital Harbor Foundation Tech Center provides after school programming for students at Digital Harbor High School in grades 9 through 12. The students participate in interest based activities and projects of their own design, focused on developing workforce skills in computer-aided design, 3D fabrication, web development, mobile app development, strategized gaming and competition, DJing and mixing techniques, and audio production. Volunteers from the local community assist in each of these specialized areas to enhance the learning experience of all of our students.
Elementary After School Program
The Digital Harbor Foundation Tech Center provides after school programming for students at Federal Hill Prep in grades K through 6. The students develop skills in collaboration, critical thinking, and organization while enhancing their digital literacy through a variety of project-based learning activities. Students work in small groups facilitated by volunteers from the local community, and the programs are developed and led by Digital Harbor Foundation staff.
Elementary Summer Camp
The Digital Harbor Foundation Tech Center will be providing a Summer Maker Camp for students entering the 4th through 6th grades in the fall of 2013. The camp is open to any student in that age range, and will focus on hands on creative building and tech activities and will run in four two week sessions beginning June 17, 2013. This camp will be led by members of the Maker Corps who will facilitate the learning of the students in small groups. Registration for the four camp sessions will begin on April 1, 2013.
