About

We invite students who express an interest in computer science from across Saskatoon and surrounding areas to participate in Digitized. Throughout the day, students participate in various activities such as hands-on workshops. These workshops include robotics, animation, digital media, web programming, mobile, and video games. Students also attend speaker presentations from experts in the industry, with topics such as gaming, mobile, entrepreneurship, software development, cyber-security, bioinformatics and more.

Over 350 high school students attend every year, ranging from grade 10, 11, and 12. The event wouldn't be a success without the help from over 40 volunteers, consisting of numerous high school teachers and sponsors.
