Digital Design & Innovation


Digital Design & Innovation is heavily influenced by the Maker Movement & more specifically, the Maker Education Movement.

AHS DDI built upon the curriculum originally created by the MakersFactory of Santa Cruz.

DDI class is designed to be a feeder program for Digital Nest, located just off the Watsonville Plaza, as well as the Cabrillo College Maker Space currently under construction.

Students are provided with FREE, Open-Source, cutting-edge technologies in order to allow them to create original works whether at school or at home.

The DDI Curriculum currently includes the mastery of:
