We invite you to join us for one of our Information Sessions for Teachers and Counselors to learn more about DigiPen's degree programs in game development, digital art, sound design, and interactive simulation technology.
Find out how your students can explore careers in a range of high-tech industries while still in elementary, middle or high school. Meet with DigiPen admissions staff and current students, and enjoy a complimentary meal from our Bits and Bytes Café.
The following information sessions are available for the 2016-17 school year:
On-site: November 2, 2016 and April 22, 2017

DigiPen hosts many on-campus elementary-, middle- and high-school outreach programs throughout the year.
If you have or know of students who may be interested in learning about game design, engineering, sound design, or animation, they may visit DigiPen to shadow a student for the day, participate in a ProjectFUN Youth Program, or attend the annual Career Exploration Workshops.
For more information about these programs, please email outreach(at)digipen(dot)edu or call (425) 629-5001.
Every year, representatives from DigiPen attend offsite college fairs and industry events. Please let the Office of Admissions know if your school is near any of the cities we'll be visiting and if you'd like a representative to make an in-person visit.
As an alternative to an onsite field trip or presentation, the Office of Admissions is happy to arrange an online visit to your school.
The minimum requirement is a computer with Internet access that can be hooked up to a projector and speakers. If a computer lab is available, students can sign on individually for a more interactive experience. Please email outreach(at)digipen(dot)edu or call (425) 629-5001 for more information and to schedule an online presentation.
For the past decade, DigiPen has been involved with many different community organizations and schools across the country through its various educational outreach programs. For example, several high schools have set up onsite DigiPen Technology Academies to encourage and spark new interest math, science, and engineering via game development.
More recently some of DigiPen's high-school programs and workshops have become available online and are more easily accessible to students and schools outside Washington state. Please contact the ProjectFUN Administration by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 425-629-5007 for more information.
