£10,000 FIRST PRIZE

BT is offering a first prize worth £10,000 in its annual Tech Factor competition, which calls on schools to show how they would use technology to boost the tech literacy skills of their pupils.

The prize can be spent in the BT Business Direct Shop on the very latest technology for the school or college.

There are also two runner-up prizes of £5,000, one for the best Key Stage 1-2 school entry and the other for the best Key Stage 3-4 school entry. The Tech Factor 2017 competition will also award schools with a series of partner-sponsored prizes from Microsoft, HP, Kyocera, Epson, Fujitsu, Kensington and Brother, giving more schools the chance to win tech. The closing date is 26 May 2017.

The Tech Factor team want schools to think about the technology they want but currently can’t afford, technology which will really enhance learning and prepare students for the future.

The Tech Factor competition is part of BT’s wider Tech Literacy initiative to inspire young people in the UK to embrace the role technology plays in their lives. Also, with its Barefoot Computing Project, BT is currently offering free teaching-resources and volunteer-led training workshops, designed to help primary school teachers become more confident when teaching computer science and computing skills.
