TeenTech is a lively one-day event to help young teenagers see the wide range of career possibilities in Science, Engineering and Technology.
It is an award winning, industry-led initiative, founded in 2008 by Maggie Philbin and Chris Dodson and the Education Business Partnerships in Berkshire to help the “X Factor” generation understand their true potential and the real opportunities available in the contemporary STEM workplace.
TeenTech events take place at venues across the UK – at each event 300 pupils from 30 different schools benefit from hands-on exhibits and challenges run by leading organisations. TeenTech works collaboratively with Education Business Partnerships, companies, Universities and business organisations to create these very special experiences for young people.
In 2010 TeenTech won the Best Engineering Event in Science and Engineering Week award and in 2011 was the only UK organisation to receive a Google RISE award. In 2012 Maggie Philbin and TeenTech also won Best Outreach and Engagement Award presented by UKRC/WISE (Women in Science and Engineering).
In this last year EBPs in UK supported Teentech in the delivery of this outstanding programme in Berkshire, Kent, Yorkshire, Staffordshire, Hampshire, Swansea, Gloucestershire and Surrey. For more information about this and future events visit www.teentechevent.com.
