Daktronics Event Production Curriculum

Provide Student Opportunities with Your Video Display

Beyond being an exciting addition to your facility and a source of revenue, video boards are also great opportunities for students to learn about the art of event production. We created the Daktronics Event Production Curriculum to guide classrooms through a course that covers how to operate equipment and put on a show.

The average high school graduation rate for students concentrating in CTE programs is 93 percent, compared to an average national freshman graduation rate of 80 percent.

Education that Builds Careers


of universities and professional venues use Daktronics products

With the rise of CTE courses, teachers can use our Event Production Curriculum to provide opportunities for students to learn video production operations in high school by working with their school's video board.

By learning technical terminology and production skills with the same equipment used in larger facilities, students will be able to move straight from high school to collegiate-level events. Students will also learn valuable skills like teamwork, event planning and production requirements for game day.

Those possibilities extend beyond the collegiate level to the professional level. Those scholars will graduate and join the workforce with an advantage under their belt. They will have years of experience managing game day operations by the time they advance to professional sport event production.
