Inspiring STEM

Manufacturing, engineering and technology is a major part of County Durham’s economy and accounts for 20% of the County's GVA. Business Durham is passionate about inspiring communities, families, teachers and young people about the career opportunities in the sector.

NETPark, in Sedgefield, is one of the UK’s leading science parks. Science and technology affects us every day – from cars, trains and games consoles to smartphones, lighting and fabrics and much, much more. NETPark is expanding rapidly and will offer a range of employment opportunities in all aspects of science-based businesses: engineers, designers, scientists, technicians, sales and marketing, HR and administration – the possibilities are endless.

We deliver an outreach and engagement programme including inviting high profile speakers, running projects, teacher CPD to engage and inspire.

We work closely with partners such as the Institute of Physics, the British Science Association and Durham University to support the delivery of their programmes in County Durham.
