The third edition of TN’Teens took place on March 28th, 2024 for a day mixing fun and learnings in the technological field. With increasing success, the event once again packed the conference hall of the Digital Learning Hub, attracting 250 students. This special annual day aims to bring together industrial actors and digital talents of tomorrow from various schools in Luxembourg and the Greater Region. 

For the third consecutive year, TN’Teens happened and immersed young individuals into the heart of technology, providing them with the chance to be at the forefront of the latest innovations and engage with industry experts. Encouraging exploration of this path, TN’Teens aims to ignite passion and uncover genuine vocations. As the future representatives of the tech industry, these young minds hold the potential to become its leaders in the coming years. This gathering is designed to provide access to education, offering a unique opportunity for participants to gain insights into the diverse possibilities of technology and discover the excitement of working in this field.

A morning of learnings in five tech fields 

High schoolers kicked off their day with a series of workshops, led by prominent figures in Luxembourg’s tech industry: Avanti and Leo Sharma from Workshop4Me, representatives from Scienteens Lab, Oracle Academy, BEE Secure, LALUX, Christophe Bianco – Co-Founder & Managing Partner of Excellium –, Luxembourg Tech School, Orange Luxembourg with LetzAI, and Virtual Rangers. Each of these workshops offered the younger generation a hands-on, interactive approach to learning, around the captivating realms of AI, blockchain, coding, virtual reality, and cybersecurity. For instance, one group of students learned to develop a social media app, while another one discovered the intricacies of building their own Paintbot app.
