MOD graduates get young engineers up to speed

Children from eleven primary schools across Bristol have taken part in a project run by graduate trainee engineers from the MOD's Defence Engineering and Science Group (DESG).

Each year, a graduate development project is organised for new graduates to engage in - and this year more than 70 trainees have worked with local schools to encourage interest in science, technology, engineering and maths.

The schoolchildren were set a task related to the 'Bloodhound' project - which plans to set a new world land speed record next year - in which they had to build their own fast cars facing tough engineering challenges, but on a scale suitable for their age group.
