Grand Opening of Baltimore’s Digital Harbor Tech Center :: January 17, 2013


BALTIMORE, MD — January 17, 2013 will mark the beginning of a new era of community tech engagement in Baltimore City. The grand opening of the new Digital Harbor Tech Center will be held at 6pm on January 17th and will feature a student-led tour of the new tech and maker facilities in this former Rec Center at the corner of Light and Cross Streets.

Supported by the lead sponsorship of the Abell Foundation, OSTP, DLA Piper, and Baltimore City Public Schools, the Digital Harbor Tech Center will provide after school programs in digital literacy and tech workforce skills for Baltimore City Public Schools students. In the evening, the center will be a space for community programming and maker activities including 3D printing.

Digital Harbor Foundation has garnered the support of the Annie E. Casey Foundation, Humanim, Microsoft, BmoreBroadband, M&T Bank, the Emerging Technology Center, the Economic Alliance of Greater Baltimore, Digital Harbor Real Estate Development, SmartLogic, MindGrub, AOL, Campfire Apps, the Towson University ObjectLab, and IKEA as well as the greater Federal Hill community in creating sustainable programs that will teach highly valued tech skills while also promoting innovation and entrepreneurship among city youth.

The grand opening of the Digital Harbor Tech center is free and open to the public. The event takes place January 17th, 2013 from 6pm to 8pm. The Tech Center is located at 1045 Light Street in Federal Hill.

    What I felt last night at the Opening of the Digital Harbor Tech Center is expressed so well in this quote:

    “What should young people do with their lives today? Many things, obviously. But the most daring thing is to create stable communities in which the terrible disease of loneliness can be cured.”
    ― Kurt Vonnegut

    It was difficult last night knowing I was missing an incredible evening, with a group of students I have been fortunate to have come into my life. I would have loved to have been their to celebrate the Grand Opening with you. Take care and see you soon. God Bless!! To Shaquille Brooks, keep putting one foot in front of the other and let God lead the way. While days may seem long, in the end, you will look back and see what you have become through perseverance and the many who benefit. You are strong, even on days you don't think you can be. That is what we all go through. It is called life. See you soon.

    As a student, I am extremely thankful that everything slid into place like it did. Also, being a part of putting things together, getting rid of older things, cleaning things, basically being a part of this....wow. I'm so excited and I cannot wait for what to future holds- for not just the opening, but for the opportunities it will bring to many.
