TeenTech York Festival Virtual City of Tomorrow Live Build Day
June 24 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm UTC+0
This session is open to as many students as you like in Year 6
Due to popular demand, we are running a second virtual TeenTech City of Tomorrow Live Build Day on June 24th, to allow more schools to take part. Students will work in teams to create a building for the safer, smarter and kinder city of tomorrow.
The first virtual event, on May 24th, was a huge success, and we can’t wait to see their projects at our TeenTech Festival on July 8th. We’ve had some lovely feedback from teachers that have taken part in our virtual Live Build Days.
“Thank you so much for the session yesterday. Our students had a wonderful time and really enjoyed the day and it was fantastic to see their creations. They were so excited to hear their questions read out on the live stream and to have their buildings discussed by the experts.” – Teacher
“I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and the team for fantastic sessions today. I thought it was one of the best part-interactive webcasts I have ever used in class, with a really good mix of inspiration, description, experts and tasks to complete and feedback on. The awards certificates were brilliant and we gave out lots!” – Teacher
This session is open to as many Year 6 students as you like. This could be an entire class, or year group.
This will be an all-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.
Pupils then have 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. 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, so that classrooms across the schools can see photos of projects in various degrees of development!
The day will finish with an online follow-up session, where our experts will take a look at the work submitted so far.
Schools can then bring a group of ten students who have taken part in this event, to the TeenTech Festival on 8th July (at the Creative Centre at York St John University) 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.
