NAIT Students Designing a New Digital Media Home for the Aquatic Biosphere

Updated: May 2, 2023

Thanks to the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT), and a capstone group project in IT and Digital Media, the Aquatic Biosphere will be getting a new digital home. Under the guidance of Steve Chattaroon, Chair of Digital Media & IT, a group of programmers, designers and a business analyst came together under their self-titled Aquidian Group for four months this winter term.

The Aquatic Biosphere, as a community partner and client, worked closely with this team to lay out the challenges and targets for what a new website might look like. What came out was the rock solid foundations for not just a website but a digital home.

This talented team built the cornerstones and mapped out the content and design for a space that we are excited to see completed and launched. A multi-term project, this first phase will be handed over to the next team in the fall to continue its development.

The Aquatic Biosphere Society is proud to be a part of this program, supporting students with real world projects, and making them a part of this important development. Education as a key part of the Society's mission ties not just to educational programming delivery but also in presenting opportunities and widening doors for engagement within nature-focused endeavours. IT and digital media have a big role to play in this space.
