Sea cadets get stuck into STEM at Sultan
SEA cadets from across the UK have gathered in Gosport for a week of science, technology, engineering and maths at the HMS Sultan Sea Cadets Engineering Summer Camp.
A total of 24 cadets between the ages of 14 and 18 were given a hands-on experience at the naval base, with trips to HMS Dragon and HMS Westminster, a number of workshops and a special passing out parade.
Cadet Titania Whitam from Hull-based unit TS Iron Duke was presented with a special prize as the group's top performer.Â
Visit liaison officer, Lieutenant Commander Doug Ritchie, said: '˜ThisÂ was a fantastic event which brought the National Sea Cadet Organisation and the Royal Navy together under the Year of Engineer banner.
'˜It is hoped this event will become an enduring annual engagement which will continue to support and showcase the Royal Navy's commitment towards inspiring young people to get into engineering.'
