TeenTech Finals

After Bishop Luffa attended the SouthEast region TeenTech event in November, and ten of our students won Best Physical Innovation, we were strongly encouraged to enter teams for the TeenTech finals.

The Design and Technology department supported three groups in entering the finals, during lunch breaks and after school, fitting around other extra-curricular activities. Due to the hard work and dedication of our students one of the team entries has made the finals – Bella Wright (9Burrows) and Emmy Lamb (9Wilson) - Project ‘Lock and Go Biometric Bike Lock'.

Over 300 schools registered for the TeenTech Awards and 14,000 students participated in the TeenTech Festivals and Innovation Live sessions which lead into the TeenTech Award programme. Over a thousand students completed projects and 68 teams will present to judges on the 28th June in London, Bishop Luffa being one of them.

The TeenTech Awards, established in 2012/2013, have become a prestigious event for schools, significantly contributing to students' understanding of how science and technology can be applied to solve real-world problems. This event encourages students to develop innovative ideas aimed at improving life, making it safer, simpler, or more enjoyable. Participation in the TeenTech Awards provides a structured approach and industry contacts, making it a powerful educational tool.

Key Benefits of Participation:

  1. Practical Application of Knowledge: The Awards inspire students to apply their scientific and technological knowledge to create solutions for everyday challenges. This real-world application helps solidify their understanding and makes learning more engaging and relevant.0
  2. Development of Innovative Thinking: Students are encouraged to think creatively and develop unique ideas. This fosters innovation and problem-solving skills, which are crucial for their future academic and professional endeavours.
  3. Recognition and Feedback: All submitted projects receive constructive feedback and are awarded a bronze, silver, or gold certification. This recognition boosts students' confidence and motivation, encouraging them to pursue further achievements in their fields.
  4. National Exposure and Awards: The best projects are shortlisted for the national TeenTech Awards Final in London. This event provides students with national recognition and the opportunity to win cash prizes, enhancing their portfolios for future educational and career prospects. By reaching the final awards, Bishop Luffa has achieved the Silver Centre of Innovation and Creativity.

To ensure students have the best possible experience, preparations are necessary before the big day on the 28th June. These include refining projects, preparing presentations, and ensuring all necessary materials and details are ready for the final judging.

Good luck Bella and Emmy.

Mr J Bonney, Head of Design Technology
