We are excited to announce that the White House has invited DHF youth Sierra Seabrease, a 15 year old Baltimore City youth, to present at the 2015 White House Science Fair today! We are so proud of her accomplishment.
At the Science Fair, Sierra is exhibiting a digital piano jukebox that she designed at Digital Harbor Foundation. Sierra turned an abandoned piano that was left over when the South Baltimore Rec Center closed into the jukebox. It uses electronic components that connect the piano keys to an digital interface that displays a playlist from Spotify.
This year’s Science Fair has a specific focus on girls and women who excel in STEM. Sierra could not be a better fit! In addition to working on technology projects at DHF, Sierra is the founder of the Digital Harbor Foundation Makerettes club, a user group for female students at the Tech Center.
This is the second time that a Digital Harbor Foundation youth has been invited to showcase their work at the White House. In June 2014, DHF youth Darius McCoy presented 3D Printers he built at the White House Maker Faire.
