Lectures underway

After lunch it was time to test the NCO's ability to plan, build, apply logic to complete a task using a dedicated STEM Kit (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) ; In effect they had to come up with a solution using the STEM Kit able to transport a glass of water to a bucket several metres away; the team with the most water in their bucket at the end was the winner. Congratulations to team 5 on winning. This was a great team building experience and fun for all.
