About the Event


Do you want to understand how drones are helping the Army’s battlefield surveillance and information gathering.

Want to see the Army's high-tech aerial surveillance systems, thermal imaging sights, radars, guns, and precision rockets as well as how to FIND and STRIKE the enemy.

Like to find out how the Army uses its construction engineering skills to assist the infantry or Armoured Corps and to rebuild vital infrastructure post-conflict.

CCF cadets (aged 15-18) who are studying Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths (STEM) subjects at school or college are invited to apply to attend a special STEM event to be held at West Down Camp in Salisbury on Friday 28th June.

The camp, run by the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers with input from technical experts, civilian professionals and teachers, will combine theory with practical sessions and give cadets a real insight into how the Army uses STEM in its day-to-day work of defending the nation.

During the camp, cadets will be able to see the STEM theories that they have covered in school demonstrated in an exciting real world way by soldiers from six of the Army's most technical regiments. They include:

Royal Signals – demonstrating a range of state of the art military communications equipment and the latest cyber security initiatives.

Royal Artillery – discussing the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) for battlefield surveillance and information gathering, along with a practical session operating drones.

Royal Logistics Corps – showing how the Army is sustained in the field, including munitions, fuels and an explosives demonstration.

Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (REME) – showing how modern equipment is recovered and repaired.

Army Air Corps – discussing rotary wing (helicopter) flight.

Royal Engineers – providing insights into how military engineering can keep an army mobile, including the use of bridging equipment.

Your application and payment of £20 must be handed in to Major Reynolds ASAP to confirm your place
