Teen Tech Awards

Three boys in S3, Callum Sergeant, Colin Gass, and Cameron Gunn, are in a national competition, the TeenTech Awards, and are planning on reinventing one very important airplane technology.

They have been very kindly loaned a previously functional black box by British Airways.

It will be very useful for the young pupils investigation and presentation to the judges in the TeenTech competition.

The TeenTech Awards are an annual initiative run by TeenTech that challenges young people aged 11-19 to tackle key societal and environmental issues using the power of science, technology and engineering. Each year, finalists present their ideas live to a panel of judges made up of celebrities, journalists and eminent academics. The overall winners will then be invited to present their idea to HRH Duke of York Award sponsors include Accenture, Atkins, CILIP, Cross Country Trains, GSK, FDM Group, JVCKenwood, Lloyds Banking Group, Rolls Royce and Symantec. In addition, more than 35 Universities and 70 companies mentor students for the TeenTech Awards.

A huge thanks to all who have helped them so far, and a special thank you for British Airways.
