We have run our powerful initiatives in the region for seven years, bringing together 30 schools and a wide range of international, national and regional companies. Schools recognise the quality of our exciting regional festival day and the complementary support provided through our TeenTech Award, TeenTech City of Tomorrow programmes and Create Your Future days.

- Provide a hands on activity at our South Yorkshire Festival
- Provide industry ambassadors at our South Yorkshire Festival
- Share your career story at a Doncaster school as part of our Create Your Future days
- Work with a Doncaster school on their ‘build day’ for TeenTech City of Tomorrow
- Mentor students as part of our TeenTech Awards programme

The Festival day
The Festival is a day that inspires young people and challenges their perceptions about future careers. Designed for Year 8 or Year 9 students, who will work alongside over 150 scientists ,engineers and people working in technology, completing hands on activities, challenges and experiments which help them see how much they might enjoy working in these sectors.
This vibrant event brings technology and engineering to life and develops long lasting relationships. Schools who attend are encouraged to enter the TeenTech Awards and teams from this region have not only made it through to the final at The Royal Society but have won their categories and been invited to Buckingham Palace!
In 2018 one young TeenTech student from this event was invited to represent the UK in the USA as runner up Young Engineer of the year.
This event is project managed by Sandra Cooper. if you would like further information please contact us.
