You can register, and join us live, for our upcoming TeenTech Live sessions in Wales here. We have heard from many teachers and parents that they would like to replay some of our recent live sessions, so we’re making them available to watch back.

For TeenTech Innovation Live sessions, your students/children are welcome to complete projects for any of these sessions, and send across any questions they may have, even though the deadline has passed, and we’ll provide feedback on our upcoming Ask the Experts/Feedback Session on May 11th.

For TeenTech City of Tomorrow Live sessions, you can submit projects up until April 20th and we’ll showcase all projects on our Ask the Experts Feedback Session on May 3rd.

The dates below show the original live broadcast of the session. When you register you will be sent the link to the session to watch at your convenience or share with your pupils through your usual channels.

You will also be sent an email with details of supporting resources, again this will reference the date of the original showing. You can ignore the date and time referenced in this email, and click through and watch the session immediately, or at a time that suits you.

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.

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.

Student

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.

Student

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.

Student

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.
