The 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, on the topic of innovation and future technology.
This session is open to as many students as you like. This could be an entire class or year group.
This session is online with guest contributors working in contemporary industry. The livestream can 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 set an innovation challenge, where they will come up with ideas to address real-world problems connected to the session topic of sustainability. Students should then be given some time (45-60 ideas) to come up with their initial ideas, which they will develop further at the in-person Festival.
Schools can then bring a group of ten students who have taken part in this event, to the TeenTech Milton Keynes Festival on July 4th (at the South Central Institute of Technology) where they will receive feedback from experts and also 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.
You will be sent joining details closer to the date of the event. If you need to cancel your place, please revisit this page, or you can manage all of your bookings from the My Events page.
