The event will take place during the first week of July 2022 and will be spread over a number of days, showcasing the range of businesses, careers and job roles available in our region in this sector now and in the future.

Businesses will be invited to deliver fun, interactive and hands on sessions relating to their industry, specifically in response to Climate Change and their plans to reach Net Zero by 2030. Over 3000 young people from the regions schools will be invited to attend the hands-on event where they will meet and engage with a number of North East industries working in this sector.

The face-to-face event will be held at St James’ Park and the new NUCastle building due to open in Spring 2022 and will be split into the following 5 areas:

Power & Natural Resources

Climate Adaptation

Business & Industry

Buildings & Construction 


Virtual event

In order to reach a wider audience, some exhibitors will also be asked to pre-record a short video about their industry which can be accessed on the day via a virtual platform.

Business Support and Networking

There will be opportunities for business networking after the schools have left, business breakfast networking before schools arrive and business support via RTC North advisers throughout the event. It is likely that this event will be very popular with businesses and schools, so if you are interested in exhibiting or supporting STEMFest Net Zero in any way, please contact the STEM team by email at


There will also be pre and post event resources and activities available including CPD opportunities to support teachers in their planning.
