TeenTech Events

TeenTech Events

TeenTech CIC run engaging, hands on, sharply focused events helping young people understand the real opportunities in contemporary industry.

TeenTech Event days are large scale regional events bringing together students from 30/50 schools across a region and over 140 scientists, technologists and engineers for a day of challenges and experiments. We have measured the impact of events since 2008 and know there is a real shift in student perceptions, particularly amongst girls. Events run in 15 regions of the UK and the Republic of Ireland, each with its own regional steering group. The event day is just part of the initiative with schools working on projects both pre and post event.

Feedback from teachers and companies is overwhelmingly positive with 98.5% schools who attended a TeenTech event in 2014 saying they will definitely attend another. You can find dates for 2017/2018 events below.

TeenTech Digital events are suitable for smaller venues and festivals. They are suitable for up to 150 students and offer fresh insight into digital skills, entrepreneurship and innovation. TeenTech Teacher CPD sessions provide insight into the fast changing careers landscape and the skills needed. We run the sessions in collaboration with industry.
