TeenTethics: The Development and Training Day

Date: 14 July 2023 10:00 - 14 July 2023 15:00


There is growing recognition that engineering should be ethically principled and socially/environmentally responsible, but the views of young people are rarely collected and included in this debate.

The TeenTethics project will connect engineers with teenage innovators from across the UK. Together they will explore the ethics of decision-making and trade-offs that occur during engineering and tech innovation.

It’s an opportunity to develop outreach skills and also to understand the perspectives of young people who at the end of the whole project in Summer 2024 will produce their Young Person’s Charter for Ethical Innovation.

Who should Attend

TeenTech want engineers (of all disciplines including all areas of digital/computing ) to get involved.

On July 14th,  there will be a few spaces for ‘lightning talks’ as well as space for engineers keen to participate in the project.  The BBC, Rolls Royce and NHS will be among those participating and sharing their experiences.

You will learn techniques and strategies for sharing inspiring stories about your work. There’s also a rapid prototyping challenge, can you design and test resources, games and activities for schools in one afternoon?

From the Autumn, there will also be opportunities for you and your teams to support special TeenTethics days in secondary schools in London, Manchester, Cardiff, Derby and Strathclyde.

Don’t miss this opportunity to boost your public engagement profile and confidence. They guarantee fun! Plus, you’ll build your networks and meet some incredible innovators both on 14th July and when you go into a school local to you.
