TeenTech Cymru

  Link to Press Release   TeenTech will be holding our first event in Wales this May, at the Liberty Stadium in Swansea on May 9th. We’re really looking forward to welcoming hundreds of young people from across South Wales to an event which will celebrate the very best opportunities in Science, Engineering and Technology. We will be working alongside Technocamps to create a very special event which will help students and teachers understand the breadth of career possibilities in these sectors. There will be exciting and focussed activities from over 30 different companies and Universities. From hacking electric guitars to understanding how to design the next generation of aircraft, building websites with the BBC to building cities for sustainability, the day will offer compelling insight for students in Yr 8 and their teachers. If you are a company and would like to run an interactive activity to showcase your industry or a school keen to bring students, please contact Roland Allen for details: roland @teentechevent.com. We are also running two special teacher events on 8th May (South Wales) and June 12th (North Wales) If you would like details about these please contact polly@teentechevent.com....

Amongst the cool stuff on offer were PES Performance with their “Skeleton Bob” Bob-Sleigh simulator, The Welding Institute with their chocolate welding demonstration (strangely popular with all) and e-mpirical with some amazing 3D Printing.Other favourites included Pavegen demonstrating pavement slabs, which generate electricity when you walk on them, and the BBC Blue Room who had one of the new Litro cameras to get to grips with. There was always a crowd around the London Underground track design demonstration where you could bend the magnetic rail track up and down to try and create a smooth glide into a station for a train.   If you fancied working in the film or television industry, then there was a chance to show The Crewing Company whether you could cut it as a camera operator or a vision mixer on a live TeenTech News bulletin. For the fresh air fans Atkins were busy building a dome out on...
