On Saturday Cadets from 2nd Battalion The Highlanders along with their cadet colleagues from 1st Battalion The Highlanders were the guests of 39 Engineer Regiment at Kinloss Barracks.
During the day the cadets participated in various tasks under the watchful eye of instructors from the Royal Engineers. Cadets had the opportunity to try out mine detecting equipment, build shelters using sand bags and have a go at operating a mechanical digging machine.
After lunch competition time arrived and the various groups had the opportunity to build a working catapult from a STEM kit. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics)
STEM kits are amazing tools to teach young people inspiration, teamwork and problem solving techniques.
Before departing for their homes cadets were presented with attendance certificates by the Commanding Officer of 39 Engineer Regiment.
Our thanks to the staff at Kinloss Barracks for a wonderful and exciting day.
