Beavers Scout Group visit POLE STAR

The 37th Ardchattan Argyll Beavers Scout Group visited our ship POLE STAR on Monday night. The group are currently studying lighthouses and harbours and it was great to give them the opportunity to go on board and meet the crew. The children were shown how life jackets work, how to operate the life-saving lights, and were able to sit in the Captain’s chair.

Fiona Vick, ESTF Technician with NLB and STEM ambassador said,

“I’m passionate about encouraging children into engineering. Opportunities like this where they can put into practice what they have been learning in the group are invaluable. The children were very interested in how everything worked and put Captain Mike Smith’s knowledge of the ship to the test.”
