Join us for an incredible 9-week journey that empowers students aged 12-19 to explore the exciting realms of software development and music production. 

Our curriculum is carefully crafted to be engaging and hands-on, whether in virtual or in-person settings. Students dive into a world of creativity through a series of activities that include training, practical work, product packaging, and presentations.

But it’s more than just learning technical skills. Our workshops focus on nurturing essential life skills like collaboration, communication, and decision-making. Through fun team-building assignments, students build a strong foundation for future success.

At the end of this enriching experience, your child will have created something amazing—a video game or a music album available for download.

So why is this experience so important? In today’s world, these skills are like keys to opportunity. And at DBH, we’re committed to providing these opportunities, especially for our black and brown communities.

As your child journeys through our workshops, they’re not just gaining skills; they’re building a foundation for their future. They’re creating a professional portfolio and enhancing their resume, setting them up for success in whatever path they choose.

Don’t miss out on this chance to nurture your child’s potential. Join us at DBH’s STEAM Workshops and watch them shine!

You can pay fees later. The workshop costs $200, but it’s free to register. Within the duration of the program, we can discuss payment arrangements or request a scholarship option. Plus, there’s a chance that your fees might be covered by the end of the workshop.

This 9-week course will meet weekly on mons and weds from 5 pm – 7 pm EST.

Note: Each registered student must have their own email, this information is used to create the account for the Workshop App. The parent’s email must be different from the student’s. This also helps parents stay up to date with the student’s progress and keep communication during the workshop.
