Inspiring Tomorrow's Innovators
TeenTech helps young people understand the opportunities in the science, technology and engineering industries, no matter what their gender or social background. Our lively, focussed age appropriate initiatives help young people 8-18 understand their potential and raise their aspirations.
We measure impact and know the initiative is particularly powerful in encouraging girls and students from disadvantaged backgrounds to consider careers in construction, applied sciences, technology and engineering. We provide these students and schools with a framework of activity and a network of useful contacts .
Programmes are carefully planned to engage teachers and parents as they are the main influencers in career decisions. We support companies, colleges and universities, providing them with strategies of engagement and ways to develop approaches which work well with young people.
TeenTech Events are lively one-day events designed to help young teenagers see the wide range of career possibilities in Science, Engineering and Technology.
TeenTech is lucky to be supported by some of the UK’s largest science and technology companies and organisations who get involved with TeenTech Events and the Awards.
