NETPark We Are Ten

NETPark Community Engagement

NETPark is one of the UK’s leading science parks with some seriously cool and cutting edge stuff going on. It is expanding rapidly and companies at NETPark will offer a range of employment opportunities in all aspects of science-based businesses: engineers, designers, scientists, technicians, sales and marketing, HR and administration – the possibilities are endless.

NETPark delivers an outreach and engagement programme to inspire and engage local communities about the opportunities offered by the commercialisation of science at NETPark. Science and technology affects us all the time, every day, from cars to trains to x-Boxes to iPhones to lighting to fabrics to computers to cosmetics to cleaning products to medicine and much much more.

NETPark offers events, projects, teacher CPD, and much more to engage and inspire people (young and old) about the wonders of science and build awareness of the opportunities that NETPark will offer. We actively support the principles of STEAM as well as STEM - science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics - and encourage the inclusion of arts and humanities students and teachers in our activities.
