The Teentech Experience Is Coming To Hull For A Second Year

The Humber Education Business Partnership (EBP) has once again joined forces with Maggie Philbin to bring to the Humber sub-region "The TechTech experience." This exciting event is to be held at the KC Stadium on 12th July.

Maggie Philbin said: "Teenagers dream about owning the latest gadgets but few consider they could be shaping the future themselves. There's a real need to make them aware of the rich opportunities that exist in these areas. But it's also a big opportunity for businesses in those sectors to influence young people and help develop the workforce of tomorrow."

Employers from a range of science, engineering and technology companies are investing in the future of their industries by supporting this event on the look out for emerging talent. The TeenTech event will give 300 school students from the Humber region a chance to work alongside some of the people behind the gadgets that drive their 21st century lives.

Students aged 12-13 from across the Humber area will conduct experiments, handle leading-edge technology and meet the engineers, technicians and scientists from the world of big business. The aim will be to tap into their fascination with modern gadgets and encourage them to explore the key subjects at school that can lead to high-tech careers.

If you work in these areas and want to share your experiences, The Humber Education Business Partnership (EBP) are on the look-out for enthusiastic ambassadors to spend a day with a small group of students and companies to provide short interactive activities to help students get the most from the day.

The BBC, BAFTA, KC , Novartis, Jackson Civils, Balfour Beatty and HETA, TIR Training, CPC, JVC and IT@Spectrum are among the major brands that have already signed up for the event.

Sandra Cooper, general manager of the Humber EBP, said: "We want to ensure that our own young people leave education equipped with the skills that local employers need, and that they develop the aspirations to be successful in their working lives. TeenTech provides a great opportunity for the students to find out first-hand about careers in engineering, technology and science and to show people in those industries what they can do."
