TeenTech Awards
Sep 3 2018 – Jun 28 2019 all-day

Are you an innovator? Do you have an idea which could make life easier, simpler or better?

Use your imagination, to think creatively. This is a chance to ask “What if?” or even build a fun example of what this might look like.

The TeenTech Awards are for UK students from 11-16 (Years 7 to 11) and 17-19 (Year 12-13) working in teams of up to three to look at problems large and small to see if they can find a better way of doing things.

There will be a prize of £1000 to the winning school in each innovation category and the overall winners will be presented with their awards by HRH Duke of York KG at Buckingham Palace.

TDI Challenge
May 15 all-day

The Manufacturing Technologies Association has developed the TDI Challenge to promote the great design and technology and engineering work of teachers and students.

The aim of the competition is to promote STEM skills and help the technology industry better understand the challenges faced in education and how the industry can assist through collaboration.

There are four categories you can enter:

individual student aged 14-16
individual student aged 17-19
student group (3-6 members) aged 14-16
student group (3-6 members) aged 17-19

The winners of each category will win prizes such as an iPad or GoPro and the schools will receive £2000 to spend on design and technology equipment. Students and teachers can submit coursework or projects that are already existing so you needn’t spend time creating a new piece of work.
