Inspiring STEM

To deliver a net zero energy industry we must stimulate new thinking and innovation at all levels. At the Net Zero Technology Centre, we want to create a vibrant region to live and work in, with opportunities for generations to come.  

 

We work collaboratively with industry, regional bodies, schools, and universities to promote entrepreneurship and science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). Through the presentations we deliver on the energy transition and emerging technology that will help us achieve a net zero future, we emphasise the opportunities open to future generations. 

Young people are given an insight into the world of employment, through work experience with the Centre. And everyone from school children, teachers and parents to those who have already started their careers within the energy industry and beyond, have access to the support and information needed to consider a career in the Energy Industry, engineering and the associated business functions. 

To date, we have 13 STEM initiatives delivered or underway. These include: Primary Engineers, VEX Robotics, Lego League, Aberdeen Science Centre immersive reality, RS Components Titan Truck, Career Ready, Inspire20, Energy Quest and SuSTEMability.
