About TeenTech™ Hampshire

This event is an award winning insight into Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths industries aimed at Year 8/9 students. By attending this event you will be meeting the Gatsby Benchmarks 2, 4, 5 & 7. Below are some great reasons for you to attend.

  • A day of intriguing encounters and practical challenges with over 30 employers in
    Science, Technology and Engineering industries.
  • Allows students and teachers to explore different industries and career possibilities.
    Students will be guided by ‘Industry Ambassadors’ throughout the day.
  • Maggie Philbin, TeenTech Founder and Bang goes the Theory presenter will host this prestigious event.

The event is lively but very carefully organised. 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”.

By highlighting different entry levels, including those for apprentices and technicians as well as graduates, we      encourage young people of all abilities.

Our research shows this carefully organised day:

  • Helps teenagers to refocus their thinking about school subject choices and to consider career paths they never knew existed.
  • Changes their perceptions about STEM and the people who work in it
  • Gives some students confidence about their abilities they may not have found in the classroom.
    • Sharpens teachers’ knowledge about industry and provides plenty of ideas to enrich lessons.
    • Builds new relationships between schools and companies
    • Makes companies aware of the latent talent in the classroom
