Teentech at The University of Manchester
|Dates:||1 November 2017|
|What is it:||Outreach and enrichment activities|
|Organiser:||Student Recruitment and Widening Participation Team|
|Who is it for:||Secondary schools|
TeenTech Event days are large scale regional events bringing together students from 30/50 schools across a region and over 140 scientists, technologists and engineers for a day of challenges and experiments. We have measured the impact of events since 2008 and know there is a real shift in student perceptions, particularly amongst girls. Events run in 15 regions of the UK and the Republic of Ireland, each with its own regional steering group. The event day is just part of the initiative with schools working on projects both pre and post event.
Feedback from teachers and companies is overwhelmingly positive with 98.5% schools who attended a TeenTech event in 2014 saying they will definitely attend another.
For the fourth year we will welcome 300 pupils from 30 schools across Greater Manchester and the North West, giving learners the opportunity to interact with over 30 local and national STEM employers.
If you would like to be a sponsor for this event do get in touch with us. Sponsors are invited to join the steering group and help build the initiative across the North West. Email : Sandra@teentechevent.com
