ISA-SAIT World Student Games

The ISA-SAIT World Student Games (referred to as the Student Games) will be the 7th annual event hosted by the ISA-SAIT Student Section. This year, the event will take place over four days (March 13-16).

The purpose of the Student Games is threefold:

  1. To provide students with the opportunity to apply their knowledge in practical instrumentation scenarios.
  2. To let students to meet, network, and collaborate with other individuals in their field.
  3. To have fun!

To this end, students from each school will be split into one of sixteen teams. Each team will have one SAIT student and three other students, all from different institutions. By distributing students in this manner, we aim to provide participants with an atmosphere that is more conducive to cooperation than competition. Each team will attempt to solve six challenges based in different areas of instrumentation.

Travel Details
Travel to and from the airport is the responsibility of the participating institution. Our recommendation is to use UberXL for the typical 5 person group. The total cost for the ride should range from $40-$60 CAD.
