TeenTech Innovation Day Live: Future Technology
May 13 @ 9:15 am - 12:30 pm
TeenTech events are highly interactive and designed to inspire young teenagers and their teachers about the contemporary world of Science, Engineering and Technology. TeenTech Live West Midlands Innovation Day will be a half-day of interactive sessions that are fun, engaging and provide real context to learning, helping local students understand more about careers and the way exciting emerging technology is shaping all aspects of our lives, the different entry points and the technical and personal skills which will carry them further.
The sessions focus on opportunities in Future Technology with input from local and national employers. The day is structured to offer the following opportunities for students and their teachers:
- Connect with people working at all levels of engineering and technology
- Find out more about MIRA Technology Institute
- Develop the skills which students, as well as industry, recognise as key to their future
- Ways to enrich lessons in science, computing, maths, animation, web design, design & technology
- A safe, interactive platform
- Cross-curricular learning
- A valuable network of industry contacts
Led by our experienced tech reporters, students understand more about the emerging opportunities, different entry points, the technical and personal skills needed. Students will be stepped through an innovation challenge, where they build their own solutions to address real world problems connected to the topic and value their own personal qualities.
The students will be given time to complete their projects and share them with us and then re-join our presenter and mentors to receive live feedback on their work a week later from MTI, industry experts and the TeenTech panel.
