A Digital Harbor Foundation student is featured in a new documentary series released this week on Roku and Amazon Prime.

The Make it Work documentary series, directed by Kip and Kern Konwiser, features four episodes following youth makers and STEM innovators. Among them is Samuel Mitchell, who is one of the Baltimore students who participates in maker programming at the nonprofit’s Federal Hill rec center-turned-tech center.

“Shortly after the Freddie Gray uprising, Legendary Films came to Baltimore where they found inspiration among Digital Harbor Foundation youth,” an email about the episode from Digital Harbor Foundation states. “Their documentary follows one of our youth, Samuel Mitchell, from when he started his first day of our Maker Foundations after-school program through transformative experiences over the next year.”

Mitchell is featured in the second episode of the series, called “The Design”. The episode features scenes from the Abilities Hackathon, the event that was held at the center and looked to engage the tech community in accessibility solutions. We highlighted work by Mitchell and teammates to create a “warning system” for wheelchairs with sensors in our recap of the first Abilities Hackathon.

DHF Executive Director Andrew Coy and Abilities Hackathon founder Ed Slattery are also featured mentors in the series.

Here’s a trailer for the series:
