The Digital Media Youth Expo will be hosted Saturday Feb 1, 2020 and is hosted by the North Vancouver School District’s Digital Media Academy (DMA). The 2017 Expo was attended by more than 800 students and their families last year to learn about the many educational and employment opportunities available in the Digital Media Industry. The Digital Media Youth Expo is a place where students, parents, families, teachers and the community can meet with representatives from many Lower Mainland Post-Secondary Schools as well as local & global organizations & institutions and studios involved in digital media.
North Vancouver School District’s Digital Media Academy (DMA), located at Argyle Secondary School, is an enriched hands-on program that provides students with access to a broad and useful range of skills and knowledge in digital arts, project management, and problem solving. Students enter a 2 year program in Grades 11 and 12 to create meaningful stories and solve challenging problems. One of the main goals of the DMA is to prepare students for post-secondary training as well as the many careers and lifestyles in digital media.
Argyle is leading the way in support of the lower mainland's booming creative economy. CapU is a strong supporter of the DMA and we look froward to growing our relationship.
What a fantastic setting to connect high school students with employers and post-secondary educations in all facets of Digital Media. Also we do have to comment on the politeness and engagement of the current DMA students in the program.
We want to thank you and your team for such a well-organized expo! We had good conversations with parents and students. The event is so well attended and hopefully intrigue some kids to be future animators!
