It’s hard to believe that we are reaching the conclusion of another busy summer at DHF. This summer we had 3 cycles of Maker Camp for Mid-High students and Elementary students and 3 cycles of Member camps. These camps ran concurrently with our YouthWorks program and many of the youth involved in YouthWorks helped facilitate programming for the camps. The summer concluded with DHF’s inaugural youth hackathon, Harbor Hacks.
We wrapped up the summer with the Harbor Hacks youth hackathon proposed by DHF member, Bella Palumbi. The hackathon was attended by 40 youth, 14 of which were non-regular program participants. The event was a perfect cap to the summer with the productivity of the past three months channeled into 3 days of innovative brainstorming, hacking, and presentation.
