TechFest is not just for kids!!!


TechFest Public Programme involves a series of talks, tours, workshops and shows, all promoting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) to the wider community.

The Public Programme aims to appeal to a large and diverse audience through talks, shows, tours, activities and workshops that take place in venues across the North East area. 

The programme involves a stimulating and large variety of events and activities. Local scientists, experts, academics and industry professionals are invited to communicate their knowledge and passion for STEM subjects.

Our 2017 Public Programme was a huge success with presenters such as Doug Allan, Jamie Woodruff and Nick Arnold. Talks and Demonstrations were provided by Universities and other institutions, local industry and businesses
