COMMUNITY

Outreach

Here in the Applied Computer Education Department, we believe in giving back and service to the community. Whether you are with an organization or a school, we strive to help our counterparts in the community promote STEAM education and activities for all.

Affiliate Events Within the Community

Whenever possible, we enjoy events that let us interact with members of the community and share how much fun I.T. can be. Here are just some of the organizations and events we have been able to work with:

DigiGirlz
Since 2015 we have participated in the Microsoft DigiGirlz event in Winnipeg. In various years we have participated in discussion panels and led sessions where young women can explore the IT industry.

CareerTrek
We have provided content and presenters to CareerTrek Day at Red River College where junior high students have the opportunity to explore several different careers in one day. We have also been presenters as part of CareerTrek’s M-Program.

Indspire
In 2018, the ACE department was involved in Indspire 2018 Soaring: Indigenous Youth Empowerment Gathering. It was a great event allowing indigenous youth to explore several careers in one day.
