Innovation Sessions

Sponsors, companies and universities offer Innovation sessions which provide insight into their industry and inspiration and support for the TeenTech Awards.

They are all very different but will provide help and support for student projects together with an inspiring opportunity to experience an aspect of the company or university facility.

The BBC, GSK, Accenture, Rolls Royce, Coventry University, Atkins, National Rail Academy- Gateshead, TFL, London Zoo and the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital -Stanmore are just some of the organisations who have opened their doors to TeenTech students.

The sessions are a unique opportunity to gain insight into world class organisations and the opportunities that lie within them.
