With two months still to go the North East’s biggest NetZero event, which welcomes over 3,000 pupils is fully booked.

STEMFEST NetZero which takes place over three days in July at St. James’ Park will be welcoming over 100 schools from across the region. The event will give school children the opportunity to explore a future career in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) sectors across a three-day event at the beginning of July at St. James’ Park.

Claire Willis Business Development Manager for the North East STEM Hub commented:

“I am delighted that the event is already sold out with eight weeks remaining. NetZero is high on the UK government's agenda for achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 and we are keen to educate and inspire the next generation on the importance of protecting the climate whilst demonstrating the opportunities that will be available in careers.

“Face to face events is back and in direct response to the growing alternative energy sector in our region, the North East STEM Hub is thrilled to be delivering a face to face and virtual (hybrid) event around the theme of ‘Net Zero’ in partnership with Newcastle United Foundation.”

STEMFEST NetZero also welcomes 50 businesses in five zones; Power and Natural Resources Zone which is sponsored by Dogger Bank Wind Farm,  Climate and Adaptation Zone sponsored by Jacobs, Building and Construction Zone sponsored by Balfour Beaty, Business and Industry Zone sponsored by Accenture and the transport zone. Caire adds:

“This ambitious event would not be possible without our sponsors so a huge thank you again to Dogger Bank Wind Farm, Jacobs, Accenture, and Balfour Beatty.”

Headline sponsored by Sage, a leader in the account, financial, HR, and payroll for small and mid-sized businesses, the face-to-face and digital hybrid event is being coordinated by the North East STEM Hub in partnership with Newcastle United Foundation’s innovative NU Futures programme.
