Members


Membership at Digital Harbor Foundation is open to middle and high school aged youth who have successfully completed our Maker Foundations program. Upon gaining membership, youth have access to advanced courses in fabrication, programming, electronics, and more. Members are also offered opportunities that reach beyond the Tech Center into the local community and active technology fields such as college credit, internships, volunteer opportunities, speaking engagements, and much more.

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”.

Fall 2017 Member Courses

This fall, we are offering two different Member courses. Members may register for one or both courses as they run on alternate days. Members must have completed Maker Foundations to enroll in these courses.

IMPORTANT CHANGE: This year, our Members courses will run for a full trimester (appx. 14 weeks), instead of the previous 7 week courses.

PROGRAMMING MINECRAFT

Create structures, hack the environment, and develop the basics of the Python programming language!

FROM ARDUINO to IOT

The From Arduino to IoT course will highlight problem solving skills through exploration at the intersection of electronics and code.

Using the Arduino programming environment, you’ll build a foundation in programming by covering key concepts such as variables, conditional statements, and computational logic. This foundation is rooted in projects that are designed to allow for exploration and experimentation with the Arduino.

The second half of the course dives into the Internet of Things. You’ll continue to build on the core concepts and build projects that use sensors that connect to the Internet! Build relevant projects that monitor your environment and then track information online while expanding your programming and electronic skills.

You will like this course if:

  • You enjoyed hands-on electronic projects using the MaKey MaKey or Raspberry Pi
  • You have an interest in learning to program through projects and challenges
  • You’re open to working and experimenting with electronic components

What to Expect:

  • Hands-on Arduino projects involving electronics and programming
  • Working with a breadboard and other electronic components
  • Practicing and developing programming skills using the Arduino language
  • Problem-solving through projects and programming challenges

Course Details:

  • Course Dates: Tuesday September 26, 2017 – Thursday January 18, 2018
  • Course Schedule:
    • 2 sessions per week: Tuesdays & Thursdays
    • 4pm – 6pm
