About the Program
Adventures in Technology is a comprehensive, carefully planned four and one-half day program that allows Grade 11 and 12 students to explore advanced technology, research, development and applications. The experience enhances each student's awareness and understanding of technology, the many ways it affects our lives, and the opportunities it holds for tomorrow.

Saskatoon has been a leader in applying various modes of technology for decades.  The University of Saskatchewan has been the incubator and Innovation Place is a natural extension of this. The five Rotary Clubs of Saskatoon jointly organize and host a maximum of 28 students from across Western Canada, including Manitoba and northern Ontario, who attend this not to be missed learning opportunity.

During their visit, students will tour an exciting array of some of Canada's most interesting corporations and research facilities including the University of Saskatchewan and the Canadian Light Source. These organizations offer tours, provide hands-on learning opportunities and informative lectures.

Students are also treated to the best in Saskatchewan hospitality. A varied social program promotes building friendships, goodwill and exercising leadership skills.
