Read on to find out more about TeenTechTM Hampshire 2016 and how to be part of the 2017 event...

TeenTech, the initiative that inspires teenagers to consider careers in Science, Technology, Maths and Engineering returned to Basingstoke on 16th June 20156 drawing 300 students from across the county for a day that changed hearts and minds.

Leading scientists, engineers and technologists from global, regional and start-up companies brought leading edge technology to show young people how they can be part of this world.  From robotics to broadcast technology, precision engineering to world class scientific research, the event showcased the range of opportunities in a fast changing career landscape.

 

TeenTech co-founder and BBC reporter Maggie Philbin said of the Hampshire event. "Students, teachers, companies and the whole team had a very exciting and productive day at TeenTech Hampshire. Its's always so gratifying to hear students saying how they have finally 'got' the point of STEM subjects and expressing a real keenness to find our more.  Basingstoke has an array of world class companies and they were also able to meet their future talent and consider how they might do more to support and develop the enthusiam generated by the day."

 

TeenTech in Hampshire is run by educational charity Basingstoke Consortium and Richard Dorney-Savage, CEO of Basingstoke Consortium says "This year, the TeenTech Hampshire event was supported by more than two hundred business volunteers.  Positive role models who work in industry are best equipped to inspire yound people to consider careers in science, technology, engineering and maths and this is why TeenTech is such a wonderful opportunity for local schools.  No-where else could young people gain access to such cutting-edge technology, aspirational business ambassadors and inspirational leaders.  Hands-on activities not only help to bring learning to life for students, but help teachers inject reality into future lessons.  The Consortium is hugely proud to once again be part of TeenTech..”

 

TeenTech is a collaborative event and would not be possible without the energy and commitment of sponsors and contributors who make this powerful day possible.  Special thanks to our regional Hampshire sponsors this year who were:  AWE, Hampshire County Council, Sony Europe Ltd and University of Winchester.
