TeenTech City 2016, London’s most inspiring Science and Technology event will be running for a fifth year in The Copper Box on the Olympic Park. We are really thrilled to yet again be bringing over 200 scientists, engineers and technologists to the Copper Box Arena to share a day of challenges and experiments with Year 8 and Year 9 students from schools across London.
TeenTech is a very carefully timetabled and immersive experience, fun but focussed giving students and young people a real insight into the industries of the future and the skills they need to take advantage of them.
The impact of the day is considerable, particularly on girls. On arrival only 22% said they were fairly or very interested in a career in engineering at the beginning of the day, whilst 71% felt that way at the end of the day.
We will open school bookings shortly.

TeenTech has run for four years in East London – three times in The Copper Box with the inaugural event being held in “Cisco House” – the stunning temporary event space which overlooked the Olympic Park during the 2012 Games.This report on BBC Click gives you a flavour of the day of the first event.
The event has always been enthusiastically received by local schools and received overwhelmingly positive feedback for providing an engaging day, full of hands-on challenges and experiments.
TeenTech was the first STEM organisation to be invited to run an event on the Olympic Park and it is a day that changes minds.
We are indebted to our sponsors City of London, City University London, Queen Mary’s College, London University, University College London who are so supportive in so many different ways and make the event possible.
