TeenTech City of Tomorrow at Home

TeenTech City of Tomorrow offers students aged 8-13 the opportunity to apply their knowledge of science, technology and engineering to create their City of Tomorrow where no ideas are too big and everything is smarter, kinder and safer than before.

Your child will be able to take part in one of our Live Build Days with industry experts, who will also give them feedback on their project at the end of the week!

Working to the brief of “smarter, kinder, safer” young people, individually or in small teams, have to design and construct architectural models of buildings, using recyclable materials, 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.

The activity highlights career pathways in construction, engineering and technology and promotes good citizenship.

Once we’ve received your registration details, we will be in touch with a link to download the Parent Pack, along with details on how to take part in one of our inspirational Live Build Days online!

You’ll join us for a Live Build Day introduction session on the Tuesday at 10:00am where we’ll set the challenge.

Your child (or children) will have a couple of days to design their building, and construct a model. You can submit their ideas, and photographs of their model, online.

You’ll then join us again for a Live Feedback Session on Friday at 10:00am with industry experts who will answer questions from your child and provide feedback on their projects!

FAQs

How will students watch the TeenTech at Home event?
Once parents have registered, TeenTech will contact them with a link where the students can watch the event live. This link will be for a private page on the TeenTech website where the video will be streamed.

What platform does TeenTech use for TeenTech at Home events?
The video stream is broadcast using YouTube’s live event technology, straight to the TeenTech website. The students can watch the presenters but the presenters will not be able to see or hear the students or communicate with them directly. YouTube’s Live Chat functionality will be disabled.

Can students interact with the presenters during the live stream?
There will be a private messaging box on the TeenTech site which students can use to ask the presenters questions without submitting personal information (other than their first name and nearest town). Questions from the students will be answered live by the presenters during the stream.

How long are the live sessions?
Both the Introduction and Feedback sessions are roughly an hour long.

Can I work in teams and how can I do this from home?
You can absolutely work in teams! Perhaps you could involve siblings? Or students can work with friends, virtually, using – for example – Skype, FaceTime, Teams, Zoom, or WhatsApp.
