CCF STEM Day Visit

A small group of Army Section cadets travelled to Grantham barracks during half term for the MOD’s national STEM challenge. The day was focused around practical STEM tasks and the cadets enjoyed activities as varied as rescuing vehicles with the REME, controlling a bomb disposal robot with the Royal Logistics Corps and building bridges with the Royal Engineers. They also had a rare opportunity to explore some large scale military kit including the Royal Artillery’s MLRS and the Royal Armoured Corps Jackal. It was an excellent day which really showcased the ideas of science in action as well as the many careers available in the Army.
