The next generation of innovators have been recognised in this year’s TeenTech Awards – an annual initiative that challenges young people aged 11 to 19 to tackle key societal and environmental issues using the STEM disciplines.

Winning concepts this year included a medication dispenser for Alzheimer’s patients, drones that detect and absorb pollutants, and an app that calculates a safe way home from school.

A total of 269 schools registered to take part and more than 1,500 students were involved from schools across the UK and Europe.

Sumair Mohammed from Evelyn Grace Academy in London was named teacher of the year, while Dalziel High School in North Lanarkshire took the People’s Choice Award for its reinvented black box.

TeenTech was co-founded by Tomorrow’s World presenter Maggie Philbin and is a STEM engagement programme offering resources and support including access to expert mentors. Full details of all this year’s winners (pictured above) are online.
