For students aged 8-11

TeenTech City of Tomorrow invites young people to design ideas for the safer, smarter, kinder City of Tomorrow, surfacing careers in the connected city, increasing awareness of global sustainability goals, citizenship.

Students consider how physical spaces (home, health, education sport, entertainment, commercial) can provide better experiences for everyone and how they might play a part in the inclusive, digitally connected, city of the future.

The emphasis is on bold creative thinking with live feedback from local and national employers.

Students get to DREAM BIG, creating buildings for their TeenTech City of Tomorrow and becoming designers, technologists and engineers.

TeenTech City of Tomorrow in Coventry will consist of a Live Build Session on Thursday 11th November, where pupils will be guided through the process, and a Live Feedback Session on Thursday 25th November where all buildings created will be showcased. All projects will receive feedback from industry experts from the world of design, technology and engineering.

TeenTech Live meets Gatsby benchmarks and has been highly praised by teachers, parents and students.

TeenTech Coventry is delivered in collaboration with the Innovative Manufacturing & Future Materials GRP at the University of Warwick and the Public Engagement and Outreach Team at WMG, University of Warwick.

    What Our Parents and Teachers Say…

    This virtual offer is amazing, so well thought out and is executed seamlessly. Such a great idea, I will be sharing on Facebook and to all my friends for their children to get involved over the coming weeks. The last few weeks have been challenging with trying to work and homeschooling, and this project actually bought my own children closer.

    Just wanted to say that, as a parent watching all of these sessions, you should all be very proud of yourselves! They are creative, thoughtful, funny, entertaining and show a lot of skill. Well done all and thanks to TeenTech for another amazing week.


    What Our Students Say…

    I have enjoyed this week so much! It has been exciting and I adored it! I learnt so much about sound and it was an incredible opportunity.


    They have been an amazing experience and I have definitely had a deeper dive into the world of tech. I have understood that it’s not all about code, there’s so much more to it.


    At the start of the week, I had a passion to be a game designer but I didn’t think I could do it. TeenTech has helped me develop my skills and helped me create a game that I enjoy. Thank You.


    I have enjoyed the sense and the atmosphere of collaboration between industry experts, TeenTech’s presenter, Ali Maggs and the bright ideas shared to everyone by the teens. These lessons have been very informative and have made me think outside the box for new innovations and ideas


    A special thankyou to…
