Over the past couple of months, TeenTech has delivered TeenTech Innovation Live (for students aged 11-19) and TeenTech City of Tomorrow Live sessions (for students aged 8-13) to thousands of students in the North East, Lancashire, and right across the UK!
During our TeenTech Innovation Live sessions (we cover different topics each week), we’ve talked space with a Planetary Scientist, discussed how we can tackle global warming and other environmental issues with a Climate Change Scientist, thought about how we can make our homes and cities smarter with experts from BT, and we looked at the fast-changing music industry with the lead singer of White Lies and a BBC radio DJ and television presenter.
Each session included a challenge too, allowing students to create short animations (from our Animation session that also included guests from Aardman, who created Wallace and Gromit), consider how to raise awareness of cybersecurity issues and prevent hacking (on our Cybersecurity session that also featured an ethical hacker as a guest), or create a videogame that pushes innovation and promotes accessibility and inclusivity (on our Game Design session with BBC Click’s Kate Russell). Our guests then joined us again for a special Feedback Session the following week where we look at all the projects and provide feedback from our industry experts!
Our TeenTech City of Tomorrow Live sessions have allowed young people to consider how we might live, work and play in the future! They tackle big, global challenges and local issues, and design safer, smarter, kinder buildings.
We’ve had some incredible ideas, and the students have built models from recyclable materials that have wowed experts from companies such as BT, Atkins, Rolls-Royce and Sprinklr. Students have also developed amazing CAD designs, and Minecraft buildings which we’ve been able to show during the feedback sessions.
All these sessions are fun, safe, and interactive, and we’ve had some incredible questions, and project ideas that could really change the world!
We have been asked by young people, teachers and parents if we can make these sessions available. We are delighted to announce that we will be replaying some of our most popular sessions over half-term!
We will be sharing the following sessions over half-term. Sessions will be available to re-watch for five days following their broadcast.
