Hopefully this will inspire some to look at engineering careers, either in the military or elsewhere. It is a very rewarding job

The purpose of the event is to encourage young people to look at engineering in a different light and possibly for them to consider a career in this field. It also encourages team work and creativity.

Students from Redruth said, “We really enjoyed the whole process, yes winning was great, but I find design very interesting. It is great to get out of the classroom and put into practice our ideas. The Navy engineers have been really helpful and are great fun.”

Petty Officer Neville Distin, was one of the organisers and mentors, “I love teaching engineering and working with the young people. They are very keen and enthusiastic. Hopefully this will inspire some to look at engineering careers, either in the military or elsewhere. It is a very rewarding job.”
