Have you registered for the TeenTech Awards? Are you an innovator? Do you have an idea which could make life better, simpler or easier? The TeenTech Awards 2014 are for young people aged 11-16 in teams of up to three . There are £1000 prizes in each of the categories and the winners will accept their Awards from our patron HRH Duke of York.This is a great opportunity to inspire and engage students, not only increasing their knowledge of science and technology but giving them confidence in their own ideas and team building skills.
Teachers need to let us know which categories you wish to enter so we can send you supporting information about mentors and Innovation days . You don’t need to have completed or even started work on projects, just fill out the Stage One Entry Form, and we will be able to give you details of how we can support your students. Entries are then submitted online for preliminary judging by the end of the Spring Term.
This year, all students who complete projects will be awarded digital badges as well as certificates. Find out more about our digital badges here
You will find full details of the competition under the 2014 Awards tab on our website. There’s a new Teacher of the Year Award and every project will also be considered for our Programming and Manufacturing Awards.
