Event providers: The University of Manchester
TeenTech will return to the University of Manchester on Tuesday 11th February 2020 in collaboration with Greater Manchester Higher.
TeenTech is an award-winning event, where year 9 students from 30 schools from across Greater Manchester will join STEM professionals from many different industries for a lively “hands-on” day of experiments and challenges. It’s an opportunity for students and teachers to learn more about careers and have their preconceptions about science and engineering changed forever.
Students move in small groups, led by an Industry Ambassador and their teacher through the Innovation Zone, Insight Exhibition and Challenge Zones. It’s a powerful intervention just before students make GCSE subject choices, dispelling gender stereotypes and shifting perceptions of careers teenagers may have considered “difficult”, “geeky” or “boring”.
