Digital Youth in-school field trip
Can’t make it to SAIT? The Digital Youth team can come to you! The Digital Youth team will be able to deliver one 90 – 120 minutes Art of the Possible session of your choosing. We offer Cybersecurity, 3D modeling & Printing, Virtual Reality & Augmented Reality, and Digital Intelligence & Digital Citizenship.
Requirements for an in-school field trip:
- Each student will be required to have access to a computer/laptop to participate in the workshop.
- Teachers are encouraged to utilize space with access to a projector, so students are able to follow the workshop while working on their individual devices.
- Explore all program areas available at Digital Youth. We offer workshop experiences covering a diverse range of digital topics.
- Register your class for a workshop using our online registration portal.
- Once registration is complete, you’ll automatically receive a confirmation email. The confirmation email will include a Release and Waiver Form that must be signed and completed by each participating student’s parent/guardian and emailed back to us at least three business days before the start date of the registered session.
- Participants will complete a pre-workshop survey. The survey is anonymous and will be used to improve our programming and the learning experience. We ask that all students please complete the pre-workshop survey before participating in the program. The survey will be sent to the teacher/educator who completed the registration.
- If we are coming to your school for the session, students will need a computer or laptop to participate in the workshop. If possible, we encourage teachers to utilize space with a projector – this allows students to follow the workshop while working on their individual devices.
- This is the fun part! Whether we are coming to your school, or you are coming to SAIT, you will get to experience and engage in the Art of the Possible.

It was very well done with engaging activities. It was a new experience for most students and I think it opened a lot of doors for them. The only issue we had was on our end with the internet connection, so some things were a little bit choppy. If we could have access to any videos involved in the presentation, that would be awesome! Thank you again for allowing us to participate.
