Our winning team at the Teen Tech Event

The Teen Tech event took place on Wednesday 28th November 2018 at the University of Manchester. It provided students with an opportunity to take part in lots of interactive activities related to different STEM careers and also gave them invaluable experience of inventing their own products and pitching their ideas to a large audience. TEMA students were one of the winning teams for the best gadget award. Well done TEMA!

Ms O’Donnell, Head of Careers, said:

The interactive activities allowed the students to consider careers and job roles they may not have previously thought about and to develop new skills. Working as a team, creating inventions and pitching ideas were also a big part of the day and I was so proud of Team Tema for their winning invention!

Gabriel, Year 9 student, said:

The event helped to build my confidence in presenting my ideas to an audience. It was also very creative as we had to come up with our own invention.

Joyce, Year 9 student, added:

Teen Tech helped me find out more about STEM job roles I hadn’t thought about before.
