TeenTech Roehampton 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.
There are different sets of activities for KS2/3 students and for sixth form/college students.
Upfront of the festival we will run a live virtual TeenTech City of Tomorrow Live Build Day after which students will work in teams to create a building for the safer, smarter and kinder city of tomorrow.
This session is open to as many students as you like. This could be an entire class, or year group.
This will be a half-day session, online with industry experts. The first part will introduce the project and inspire thinking, taking the pupils through each stage of the project, step by step. The livestream could be viewed from a screen in several classrooms, or large hall if appropriate. Students can interact by typing in questions to the presenters and industrial experts using their own designated device, or via the supervising teacher.
The session will step the students through developing their initial ideas, and then planning their construction, taking on roles within their teams.
After the live event finishes (at 11:30am), pupils will need some time to design and build their vision of a building for the safer, smarter, kinder City of Tomorrow using recyclable materials in their teams. If preferred students may produce virtual designs and ideas using Sketchup, Minecraft or other CAD systems. Pupils could work on the construction in the afternoon, on the same day, or at a time that’s convenient.
Schools can then bring a group of ten students who have taken part in this event, to the TeenTech Festival on Thursday April 25th 2024 (at the University of Roehampton) 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.
