At an educational level, Newcastle Science City aims to ensure that the promotion and take up of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths subjects (STEM) are maximised. Find out more about our work in the ‘Changing thinking on science education’ section below.

Our team have recently launched a Careers Booklet, aimed at encouraging people of all ages and capabilities to study STEM subjects so that they can take advantage of these employment opportunities.

The booklet highlights some real-life stories of how studying STEM subjects have led people into jobs as diverse as computer game design for Xbox, the testing of James Bond’s favourite Aston Martins, and the protection of the British forces across the world through complex communication systems.

To support this we have also produced an timeline which charts the history of innovation in Newcastle and the North East.

An electronic version of the booklet and the timeline are available to download below (last in the list of download files available on this page). Hard copies of the the careers booklet are also available, please email [email protected]
