TeenTech runs lively events with a supporting Award scheme to help young teenagers see the wide range of career possibilities in Science, Engineering and Technology.
We are an award winning, industry-led initiative, founded in 2008 by Maggie Philbin and Chris Dodson 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 300/500 pupils from 30/50 different schools benefit from hands-on exhibits and challenges run by leading organisations. TeenTech works collaboratively with companies, Universities, business organisations and education business partnerships 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 first 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).
