Darlington College Sponsors 'Your Future' Zone At STEMFest Tees Valley

23rd Feb 2024

Darlington College is a further education college providing courses to suit the ambitions of every single student and will be sponsoring the ‘Your Future' zone at STEMFest Tees Valley, Darlington this March. 

Organised by the North East STEM Hub, delivered by RTC North, this event is crucial for inspiring young minds and fostering an interest in STEM subjects.

Darlington College is at the heart of the local community and they strive to serve the community’s educational needs. They have forged strong relationships with partners to enhance their offering, most notably Teesside University (who will be sponsoring the Teeside University zone at STEMFest) a relationship which has brought Higher Education to the Tees Valley region.

Claire Hankey, Marketing and Engagement Manager at Darlington College Comments,

 “We are delighted to be sponsoring STEMFest Tees Valley and showcasing to young people across the region, the importance that Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths plays in the local jobs market. If we can capture their imagination of the opportunities in these subjects, we will be able to help build a great talent pool for the future.”

The other themed zones, including the Teeside University Zone, Engineering Zone, and the Science and Technology Zone, further enhances the diversity of learning experiences for the attendees. STEMFest is expected to draw over 1500 young people from Tees Valley's schools, providing a broad audience for exposure to the exciting world of STEM.

The interactive and hands-on exhibition involving over 40 leading STEM companies provides an excellent opportunity for 9 to 13-year-olds to explore and engage with various aspects of STEM.

Claire Willis, Team Leader at the North East STEM Hub comments,

“I want to thank Darlington College for supporting STEMFest Tees Valley. Our event will hopefully make an impact on all the schoolchildren that experience it.

Without ongoing support from educational establishments and our headline sponsor this year, Cummins, events like this simply couldn’t take place.”
