What is Digitized?

Digitized is the largest one-day technology career event for Saskatchewan high school students. It takes place on the University of Saskatchewan's campus and features speaker sessions, workshops, and panels. In 2019, more than 350 students attended Digitized.

Digitized is open to Grade 10-12 students from Saskatoon Public, Greater Saskatoon Catholic, Prairie Spirit, and Saskatoon Tribal Council schools. We invite students from these schools who express an interest in computer science to participate in Digitized.

Throughout the day, students participate in various activities such as hands-on workshops. Workshop topics we've had in the past include robotics, animation, digital media, web programming, user interface design, networking, mobile, and video games. Students also attend speaker presentations from experts in the industry, with topics such as gaming, data analytics, 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, teachers and sponsors.
