The TeenTech Festival for Lancashire commences the 21st February 2022 and will continue until early May with our celebration event.
“TeenTech Live Lancashire brings the exciting world of science and technology to your school, with a six-week programme of events, finishing with two Ask The Experts sessions, where we will be showcasing projects completed by your pupils throughout the programme and providing feedback from industry experts!
Last year’s TeenTech Live Lancashire programme was a huge success, and we’re delighted to be launching our second year with exciting TeenTech Innovation Live sessions, TeenTech City of Tomorrow Live Build Day sessions, and our brand new TeenTech City of Tomorrow Smart Skills sessions!
Hosted by well-known science and technology reporters, our interactive virtual sessions are fun, engaging and provide real context to learning, helping young people understand more about careers and the way exciting emerging technology is shaping all aspects of our lives.
TeenTech Live meets Gatsby benchmarks and has been highly praised by teachers, parents and students. Our sessions last an hour and students then have the option to work on short challenges or projects and participate in a follow-up feedback session with industry experts. We have sessions suitable for all ages, interests and abilities.”
The Innovation Sessions are aimed at 11-19 year olds and will cover topics such as: Game Design, Animation, Future Technology (AR/VR & robotics and beyond), Health Technology, Sustainable Technology and the Environment.
The City of Tomorrow and Smart Skills sessions are aimed at 8-13 year olds. The City of Tomorrow sessions invites young people to design ideas for the safer, smarter, kinder City of Tomorrow, surfacing careers in the connected city, increasing awareness of global sustainability goals, citizenship. The Smart Skills sessions will develop your students’ digital, media and data literacy skills.
Schools can dip in and out of the whole programme joining as many or as few sessions as they wish and is definitely not just for the Computer Science department. All sessions will take place live and will be available on demand during the festival. All sessions will be repeated during Easter holidays with some additional session on game design and coding also being available.
