ShiftKey Sandbox incorporates all of our skills development, career development, and networking-related events. From hackathons to workshops, and from Tech Talks to networking events, the Sandbox offers a low-threshold and low-stakes environment to experiment and play in the world of tech innovation. Sandbox events are available to post-secondary students across the province.
ShiftKey Build aims to give students the opportunity to experiment with the world of tech startups. Everyone has ideas, but only a few take those ideas all the way. ShiftKey Labs will help you shape your idea into something real, and can help connect you to full-scale incubators and accelerators in the province when you are ready. Build programs are available to post-secondary students across the province.
ShiftKey Academy is an applied learning program focused on technical skills essential to the job market. Academy programs facilitate students to learn in-demand skills and gain key qualifications and certifications outside the classroom setting. Academy programming is more in-depth and intensive than Sandbox programming. Academy programs are only available to Computer Science students at Dalhousie University.
