TeenTech™ Solent is a lively one-day interactive programme with a supporting Awards

How can you support TeenTech™ Solent?

INSIGHT ZONE—15 minute activity

Host a stand that provides a simple, short, hands-on challenge or curiosity that will draw
the students in and engage them in conversation about your industry. As an exhibitor
in the Insight Zone you will be asked questions about your work, career routes and the
qualifications needed.

CHALLENGE ZONE—30 minute activity

Offer an engaging and informative activity, bringing your own resources that will widen
students’ and teachers’ understanding of a facet of your industry. A small prize for the
winning team should be provided by yourselves.


One of the unique features of the TeenTech™ experience is the use of business
‘ambassadors’ who accompany small groups of students and teachers throughout the
day. They are business volunteers from any STEM company, willing to offer their time
and support, inspire and chat to young people as they experience the day. Volunteers
can be a single individual or a up to 10 individuals from the same company.


If your business needs to recruit the best technical skills in the UK, be pro-active in
supporting talent, by contributing to TeenTech™, you are directly building your future
skills resource at the same time as finding a beneficial recipient for your CSR budget.
