About DDC

DIGITAL DAY CAMP (DDC): Students enrolled in Eyebeam’s DDC summer program engage in lectures and hands-on workshops focusing on art and technology tools, careers in the field, and relevant social and artistic topics. Through their investigations, students have the opportunity to research current themes in art and technology, and develop projects in response to what they discover.

During Digital Day Camp 2011, 20 NYC teens will spend 3-weeks working under the guidance of a team of creative mentors to produce a series of deep, media-rich stories about our NYC neighborhoods. Their stories will become part of a web-based, interactive map that could include photographs, drawings, videos, music, games, words, infographics, etc—we are limited only by our imagination.
Final projects will be presented at a public event organized and promoted by Eyebeam.

DDC activities are led by invited technology professionals, contemporary artists, and Eyebeam’s current residents and fellows. Participants in past programs have engaged in project-based learning around themes of bio-tech, urban intervention, gaming, and wearable technology.

DDC is open to NYC public high school students and applications are sent out during the month of May. The program is competitive, and participating students are paid a $25/day stipend, paid out at the program’s conclusion.
