Rising to the Teentech Challenge
Two of Houlton Quantity Surveyor’s Harry Miller and Chris Padden provided support and individual mentoring to a group of young learners at the annual Teentech Challenge series, held at Doncaster Racecourse on 27th March 2014.
Teentech Challenge is an award winning, industry-led initiative, founded in 2008 by Maggie Philbin and Chris Dodson to help the “X Factor” generation understand their true potential and the real opportunities available in the contemporary STEM workplace. More information on Teentech Challenge can be found at http://www.teentechevent.com/
Supported by our YORbuild public sector partners, the Challenge presents young learners with a series of maths and science based questions, which when answered correctly gains a piece of a puzzle – all correct and the full puzzle is revealed. The intense competition between the various teams is followed by an informal Q & A session with our staff members, who can explain what we do as a company, their role within it and the tremendous variety of career opportunities the construction industry offers.
Both Harry and Chris found the experience challenging, rewarding and of course incredibly good fun – and are looking forward the Hull round of Challenge on 10th July 2014!
