It’s been 7 years since Digital Harbor Foundation opened and in that time, over 5,000 youth in grades 1-12 participated in transformative technology and career-readiness out-of-school-time programs.
This year, we’re reflecting on everything DHF’s youth have accomplished–from crafting their first piece of code, to forming new friendships, to presenting at the White House, and the thousands of victories in between– and we can’t wait to see how much more they’ll achieve.
Will you help DHF reach another 7 years?
We are doing a special push for monthly donors of $7 or more to celebrate 7 years of work. (check out some of the things we have been up to recently here on our flickr page: https://www.flickr.com/photos/digitalharbor)
Today is #GivingTuesday . In the makers/electronics/engineering community we all have something we can give, our time, our talents, our code, our designs, and today we’re celebrating companies and organizations that help make this happen. We’re also celebrating organizations and people that could use your help to keep their efforts going.
We’ll be posting all day with some #GivingTuesday ideas to consider, post yours and we’ll help get the word out.
GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world on December 3, 2019 and every day.
It was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
