Andrew Coy, Executive Director of the Digital Harbor Foundation, took time out to discuss how DHF has revolutionized Baltimore’s recreation centers into tech centers for students. The Digital Harbor Foundation fosters innovation, tech advancement, and entrepreneurship by helping youth develop digital age skills through maker activities and tech workforce development. After much acclaim, DHF has opened the Center of Excellence for Innovation in Technology Education to assist others interested in similar efforts within their communities.
I think that you will be inspired by Andrew and DHF’s work to repurpose local rec centers into labs of learning for young people interested in technology. We hope that you will be as excited as we are to learn about these amazing young people and the role technology plays in their education and lives.
