We designed a fun packed day which allowed the students to see what we do at RNAS Culdrose, interact with STEM concepts and to portray some of our proud Naval heritage.

Lieutenant Helen Forster who organised the day said: "STEM is essential to both the Royal Navy and the UK, with engineering generating 26% of the total UK GDP.

"We designed a fun packed day which allowed the students to see what we do at RNAS Culdrose, interact with STEM concepts and to portray some of our proud Naval heritage.

"It was a great day enjoyed by children, teachers and sailors alike! Events like this are a chance for our sailors to explain what they do and hopefully inspire the next generation.”

Commander of Air Engineering Jeff Bell had the honour of announcing the winners at the end of the fun packed day and awarding them with their prizes. St Hilary was the winning Primary School and Helston Community College was the winning secondary school, both with the fastest cars in their category.

Lieutenant Forster summed up the success of the event by saying: “We came away from the day incredibly impressed with the student’s designs, and their infectious enthusiasm."
