FabSLAM is a team-based, digital fabrication competition where youth learn and practice design, iteration, and rapid prototyping skills primarily focused on 3D Design and 3D Printing. A challenge theme is presented and each team works to develop a product that fits the theme and meets any accompanying requirements.
WebSLAM Develop your web programming skills through mini-projects and by building a functioning website. Learn to design and build websites using HTML, CSS, and other web technologies. This course focuses on building core User Experience (UX) and User Interface (UI) design skills for websites. Additionally, youth will work with a mock-client and build real-world skills such as communication and user-centered design.
Independent Study is an opportunity for Members who wish to work on a project that furthers their knowledge in a particular skill area or helps them develop skills outside of those offered in current DHF courses. This is also a great way for Members who have a schedule that doesn’t easily fit with the schedule of courses we typically offer to still be involved at DHF. It is not paid work.
