TeenTech Strathclyde 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, with a focus on sustainability.
This session is open to as many students as you like. This could be an entire class, or year group.
This will be an hour-long morning session, online with guest contributors working in contemporary industry and will feature guests showcasing exciting aspects of their work. 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 will think up ideas to address real-world problems connected to the session topic of Sustainability.
Schools can then bring a group of ten students who have taken part in this event, to the TeenTech Strathclyde Festival on Wednesday 30th August, at The University of Strathclyde where they will develop their projects further and receive feedback from industry experts. They will also participate in a series of lively challenges and activities which bring the world of science and technology to life.
