Teen Tech awards celebrated

The TeenTech Awards are an annual initiative run by TeenTech that challenges young people aged 11 to 19 to tackle key societal and environmental issues using the power of science, technology and engineering. This year 269 schools registered to take part in the Awards and over 1500 students were involved from schools across the UK and Europe. The awards include the research which goes into making the science work.

TeenTech Award winners have celebrated their achievements sharing ideas for, among others, a

BioPump - an electronic water pump that is completely self-sufficient and environmentally friendly and an app that will scan text and automatically simplify and summarise for use in education. The Research & Information Literacy Award was awarded to The Ladies College, Guernsey for a device to identify sugars in foods: The Best Research Project was awarded to Oakham School, Rutland about the causes of under representation of women in computer science.

Well done to all.
