Two young biologists from a Norwich school will take part in a summer school run by a leading scientific body.
Hewett Academy students Isabelle Easter and Sophie Plowman have won places to study plants and microbiology at the Norwich-based John Innes Centre’s year 10 science camp in July.
They are among just 10 students from the region who have been accepted onto the scheme.
The annual event gives students a week of scientific training and workshops at the Norwich Research Park, working alongside the region’s top scientists.
Isabelle said she was looking forward to “getting a hands-on experience of cutting-edge science, meeting top scientists, and working with other students who share my passion”.
Sophie added: “I think the camp will be very inspiring, and encourage me to look into new aspects of science which I have not yet discovered, opening up new opportunities and interests for me in my spare time and at school.”
