Apprentices across the MOD take part in design and engineering competition
Late July saw the return of the annual Tom Nevard Memorial Competition to the Defence Academy, Shrivenham.
Now in its 67th year, the event proved to be bigger, better and more exciting than ever. Over 70 engineering apprentices from across the MOD took part in the competition, joined this year by a group of DE&S project management apprentices.
Held over the course of five days, apprentices competed in challenges that included building rocket cars, crossbows and folding para bikes that were demonstrated and tested to destruction, thanks to the loan of a crane and the support from the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers.
