Digital Day Camp 06 (DDC06) focused on the relevance of and issues surrounding biotechnology projects by artists and activists. Students studied the fundamentals and ethics behind biological research (ie animal testing, germ warfare, bacteria and vaccines, dna, food growth and nano-technology) and green design, including the politics and groups involved in executing such projects. Participants learned about biotechnology practice and theory and were challenged to develop individual and team projects which were discussed in terms of the relevance to the students' communities and lives. At the conclusion of each week of DDC, the projects from the classes were displayed in a 'growing' 3-week long exhibition alongside work from the artists teaching the DDC workshops.

In July 2008, Eyebeam produced its ninth annual Digital Day Camp Program (DDC) and inviting all NYC public high school students to take part. What’s more: students (sophomores, juniors or seniors) were be paid for their participation in this interactive-art summer program.

The theme of DDC 08 echoed that of Interactivos?: Interactive art and technology and the tension between "real" and "fake". The NYC public high school students participated in workshops led by Eyebeam artists and fellows.

DDC 2007 focused on taking art and actions to the streets. Students engaged in urban research in the form of public interactions and street art. Participants studied the techniques, politics and groups involved in executing such projects, and learned about the practice and theory behind participatory actions, art, and activism. DDC students developed individual and team projects derived from their communities and lives. At the conclusion of each week of DDC; the projects were be displayed in an evolving 5-week long exhibition alongside the projects installed in Eyebeam’s 10 year exhibition.
