Schools, libraries, local councils, LEPs can register to participate here. If you are a parent or carer and would like to work with your child on this project, individual entries can also be made.
Working to the brief of “smarter, kinder, safer” young people, individually or in small teams, have to design and construct architectural models of buildings to sit on the footprint of an A4 card – but buildings can go out as well as up. Together they develop ideas for the connected city and consider how to use technology and the internet of things to improve how we will live, work and play in the future. Materials used to build project models should be recycled or cost no more than £10 if bought specially.
There will be a National Showcase for TeenTech City of Tomorrow on June 30th, 2020 at The University of Roehampton London, for young people across the UK to showcase their buildings and ideas.
- Run the activity in your primary or secondary school
- Become a ‘hub school’ and run the activity with all your feeder primaries
- Run the activity in an informal learning setting with a group of young people
To get started schools and informal learning providers can register their students and TeenTech will be in touch with the guidance documents you need to run the activity over a day, week or term.
Full guidance and curriculum-linked materials are available to schools and registered learning providers at no cost.
