TeenTech Live brings the exciting world of science and technology to your school or home.

Hosted by well- known science and technology reporters, our interactive sessions are fun, engaging and provide real context to learning, helping young people understand more about careers and the way exciting emerging technology is shaping all aspects of our lives.

TeenTech Live meets Gatsby benchmarks and has been highly praised by teachers, parents and students.

Our virtual sessions last an hour and students then have the option to work on short challenges or projects and participate in a follow-up Ask the Experts session with industry experts which will also include project feedback. We have sessions suitable for all ages, interests and abilities.

TeenTech Live in West Yorkshire will culminate with a Showcase event celebrating the hard work of your pupils through their projects!

What Our Parents and Teachers Say…

This virtual offer is amazing, so well thought out and is executed seamlessly. Such a great idea, I will be sharing on Facebook and to all my friends for their children to get involved over the coming weeks. The last few weeks have been challenging with trying to work and homeschooling, and this project actually bought my own children closer.

What Our Students Say…

I have enjoyed this week so much! It has been exciting and I adored it! I learnt so much about sound and it was an incredible opportunity.

Student

They have been an amazing experience and I have definitely had a deeper dive into the world of tech. I have understood that it’s not all about code, there’s so much more to it.

Student

At the start of the week, I had a passion to be a game designer but I didn’t think I could do it. TeenTech has helped me develop my skills and helped me create a game that I enjoy. Thank You.

Student

I have enjoyed the sense and the atmosphere of collaboration between industry experts, TeenTech’s presenter, Ali Maggs and the bright ideas shared to everyone by the teens. These lessons have been very informative and have made me think outside the box for new innovations and ideas
