TeenTech Milton Keynes Festival Virtual Innovation Live Event
8th June 2022 @ 10:30 am - 1:00 pm BST
This session is open to as many students as you like in Years 8-9
TeenTech Milton Keynes Festival will bring together schools and colleges across the region for an exciting interactive programme that will help young people understand the range of opportunities across digital, science and technology and the many different entry points.
Upfront of the festival we will run a live virtual innovation session after which students will work in teams to create a project to make life better, simpler, easier or more fun.
This session is open to as many students as you like. This could be an entire class, or year group.
This will be a morning session, online with guest contributors working in contemporary industry. The first part will feature guests showcasing exciting aspects of their work including Network Rail and the South-Central Institute of Technology. The livestream could be viewed from a screen in several classrooms, or large hall if appropriate. Students can interact by submitting questions throughout the live stream, these questions come through to the TeenTech team who send them through to the presenter to ask on screen.
Students are then stepped through an innovation challenge, where they build their own solutions to address real-world problems connected to the session topic. Members of the TeenTech team will be available online to offer help and advice throughout, as well as providing the opportunity to share progress updates along the way.
The morning will finish with an online follow-up session, where our experts will answer questions from the students.
Schools can then bring a group of ten students who have taken part in this event, to the TeenTech Festival on July 6th (at the Ridgeway Centre, Milton Keynes) where they will receive feedback from industry experts and participate in a series of lively challenges and activities which bring the world of science and technology to life. You can register for this event here, either for the morning or afternoon sessions.
