This autumn, a new festival will bring students across Sussex together for an exciting and interactive STEM (Science, Tech, Engineering and Maths) careers event for Year 8 and 9 pupils.

The TeenTech Festival takes place on Thursday 16th November 2023 at the Amex Community Stadium in Brighton. This event will be a day of fun challenges and interactive activity sessions, helping young people understand the range of opportunities across digital, science and technology and various career routes. They will also get the chance to network with employers, ask questions and get feedback on their project ideas.

The festival is preceded by a virtual innovation session on Thursday 19th October, where leading employers can showcase exciting aspects of their work.

Run by Careers Hub Sussex in partnership with the Coast to Capital Careers Hub, TeenTech Festival is looking for STEM businesses and individuals with an interest to get involved with these events.
