On Monday, tech celebrities including Brian Cox, Kate Russell, LJ Rich, Rory Cellan-Jones and Stephen McGann (Dr. Turner in Call the Midwife) Dallas Campbell, and Suzie Imber joined students, parents and teachers across the UK as we celebrated the outstanding finalist projects in the TeenTech Awards Ceremony.
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.
Registration is now open for the TeenTech Awards 2022. Visit the TeenTech Awards page to learn more and register.
