In-School: POPS

POPS Game Design Assembly

Spy Hop In-School POPS Programs (Professional Outreach Programs in the Schools) are designed to inspire students and teachers throughout Utah with our impactful digital arts curriculum. These programs introduce young people to concepts of media arts in film, audio and design. These activities encourage engagement in core subjects as well as develop 21st century skills.

Spy Hop’s In-School Programs bring teaching artists to a single classroom, grade level, or an entire school. We offer assemblies and intensive workshops that introduce students to the language and concepts of media arts through an interactive experience, which include onstage student participants.

  • Students experience a media arts demonstration.
  • Students learn about possible college and career opportunities related to the media arts.
  • Students learn how the digital media arts can serve as a vehicle for making, perceiving, expressing and contextualizing content and can be integrated into other art disciplines.
  • Students are introduced to the media production process, including pre-production, production, post-production, and distribution.


We want to bring media arts education to your students and teachers! We are offering a FREE hands-on assembly in video game design or audio engineering to grades 2-9.


For teachers interested in giving their class a more in-depth experience, we also offer FREE multi-day classroom intensives in video game design, filmmaking, songwriting, or audio engineering for grades 6-12.
