Adventures in Technology is a comprehensive, carefully planned four and one-half day event that allows Western Canadian Grade 11 and 12 students to explore advanced technology, research, development and applications. The experience enhances each participant'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 Saskatoon has been the incubator and Innovation Place is a natural extension of this. The Rotary Clubs of Saskatoon jointly organize and host approximately 28 students from across Western Canada, including Manitoba and northern Ontario. The AIT program is held during the last week in April. The students are billeted with Rotarians.
 
During their visit, students tour an exciting array of some of Canada's finest corporations and research facilities such as the University of Saskatchewan, Areva Resources Ltd, Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan, and the Canadian Light Source. These organizations offer tours, provide hands-on 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
 
This year’s event will be held from Sunday, April 28th to Friday, May 3rd, 2019. Students are asked to arrive on Sunday, April 28th (Welcome Reception & Ice-Breaker starts at 6:30pm). The event winds up with a luncheon on Friday, May 3rd, and students can arrange travel anytime thereafter. This program is fully funded by the Rotary Club of Prince Albert. Application Deadline Feb. 22, 2019

In honor of Rotary Awareness Month we're taking a look back at some of the amazing projects the Prince Albert Rotary Club has been lucky enough to have played a part in. Most people know about our involvement with the Rotary Trail, our beautiful walking trail along our riverbank, however, did you know that Rotary also played part in helping some of the following Prince Albert institutions? Here are a few of the many projects we've taken part in over the years: Abbeyfield House, the picnic shelter at Little Red, Wesmore Community High School, Victoria Hospital, Pineview Terrace, Mount St. Joseph, Habitat for Humanity, E.A. Rawlinson Centre for the Arts, Art Hauser Centre, Alfred Jenkins Field House, Ministers Park, and most recently the reconstruction of the Ball Diamonds in Prime Ministers Park.
