Maggie Philbin comments on TeenTech Success
Following the schools involvement with TeenTech, Maggie Philbin wanted to pass on the following comments:
“TeenTech were very much impressed by the quality of support offered by Ysgol Glan-y-Mor to their students during their progression through our TeenTech Awards programme. We know that one of the main ways schools can inspire students is through sustained contact with inspiring ambassadors from industry and the structure of our Award programme is designed to facilitate this. It was obvious from the final project work submitted that the school, teacher and students had completely embraced this approach, with clear evidence of how they had reached out not only to our to our supporting sponsors, universities and colleges but also to the local community. Two teams from this school reached the final, with one team winning their category and subsequently being invited to Buckingham Palace. Significantly this success was shared with the whole community being invited to the school - further amplifying the impact.
We have seen how this school works extremely hard to help their students gain not only knowledge but the self belief to compete with the very best in the UK. The impact of this dedication goes way beyond success in our Award scheme but will equip students with the confidence for later life.”
