Our first event of the Autumn is coming up and we’re proud and delighted to be part of the European City of Culture celebrations in Northern Ireland. Every school in Derry will be coming to TeenTech at The Venue, a huge event space across the beautiful Peace Bridge.

CultureTech will be  Northern Irelands biggest digital and creative  event,  as the whole city – every bar, cafe, club, shopping centre, theatre, cinema and unloved space rocks with the industry’s finest international talent and technology. It’s worth checking out the fabulous programme of events and activities. Our TeenTech CEO, Maggie Philbin, will also be chairing a session “Is Time Up for Broadcast Television” as part of the Belfast Media Festival sessions running as part of the celebrations.

The students who join us for TeenTech will be designing apps and then meeting over 100 scientists, engineers and technologists from across Northern Ireland who’ll be bringing their shiniest tech and running workshops and interactive stands to help the young people of the North West see how they can be part of this world.
