Maker Foundations


Digital Harbor Foundation’s Maker Foundations program is an introductory course for middle and high school youth. Enjoy learning new skills and creating projects as an exploration of popular maker topics. In this program you will design and 3D print your own creations, learn to program games and make your own game artwork, make a website, create interactive electronics, and much more!

No prior experience necessary! We will teach you everything you need to know to be successful!

If you are unable to attend Anchor Night but are still interested in participating, please email us.

PAY WHAT YOU CAN

At Digital Harbor Foundation we firmly believe that financial capacity should never be a barrier to participation in our youth programs. With the help of many of our wonderful supporters, we are able to offer all of our youth programs as Pay What You Can.

This means that while there is a recommended donation for each course, we encourage families to pay what they are able to afford. If you need a Free ticket, please click “Enter Promotional Code” on the Tickets page and enter the code “PWYC”.
