Wednesday 5th August
Have you ever considered the challenges of humankind becoming a multi-planetary species? What problems would we need to overcome if we are to live and work on a planet that is unlike Earth? How would we get there? What training would we need? What would we need to wear in order to survive? Join Dallas Campbell (broadcaster, speaker and author) and Suzie Imber (Associate Professor in Space Physics and winner of BBC2 series, Astronauts: Do You Have What It Takes?) for a TeenTech Innovation Day at Home where you’ll be set a space-themed challenge.
The virtual final for the TeenTech Awards brought together 57 teams from across the UK to celebrative bold creative thinking and impressive skillsets, which many judges said they’d appreciate right now in their own companies. 1500 students participated, 1008 girls and 449 boys.
TeenTech Innovation Days at Home
Do you want to meet some exciting people who work in science and technology?
TeenTech Innovation Sessions offer students insight into world-class organisations and the opportunities that lie within them.
You can ask questions, develop your own solutions to global challenges and learn more about different careers.
TeenTech City of Tomorrow at Home
TeenTech City of Tomorrow offers students aged 8-13 the opportunity to apply their knowledge of science, technology and engineering to create their City of Tomorrow where no ideas are too big and everything is smarter, kinder and safer than before.
You can take part online in one of our Live Build Days or run the project independently at home!
Are you an innovator? Do you have an idea which could make life easier, simpler or better? We want you to use your imagination, to think creatively. This is a chance to ask “What if?” or even build a fun example of what this might look like.
Judging is currently in process for the TeenTech Awards 2020, and registration is now open for the TeenTech Awards 2021. Visit the TeenTech Awards page to learn more and register.
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.
The TeenTech Awards are for UK students from 11-16 (years 7-11) and 17-18 (Years 12-13) working in teams of up to three to look at problems large and small to see if they can find a better way of doing things.
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.
If you would like to be part of a movement which is making a significant difference, please do get in touch.
We would be delighted to discuss opportunities. We measure short and long term 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.
