Science Outreach and Engagement

Full on Futures

Full on futures projects involve young people developing unique career events for their peers.

'Boom 11' was the result of the hard work and dedication of twenty one Year 9 students from Our Lady & St Bede and Grangefield Schools in Stockton. Their event exposed 400 young people to future employment opportunities that will be influenced by science, creativity and innovation, and included a fire-breathing dragon, TV production workshops and science cookery. This project was a partnership between Durham University and the NETPark Connector Project, Creative Partnerships and the ARC, Stockton.

The TechnoRoadshow also resulted from the enthusiasm of seven young people, from Tanfield School. Over 650 young people from across Derwentside attended their event which included a DNA workshop delivered by one of the organising team and Durham University PhD students. Thirty six companies were involved including P&G, the NHS and STEMNET. Derwentside Enterprise worked with Durham University and the NETPark Connector Project to produce this project.
