A 'super team of girls' at a city school have beaten off competition from across the country to win an industry-led award.
The group, named the Stemettes, from Jane Austen College, Norwich, were recognised at the 2019 Industrial Cadets Awards - a national accreditation intended to create oppotunities for youngsters - for their work in designing an eco-hotel.
Their creation, named Hotel Amet - Latin for environment - came after research into reducing energy consumption, development of a prototype and a 40-page report.
The girls' presentation of all their hard work saw them scoop the Bronze level award, coming top of their 12-14 age group.
Judges said their project was completed "to a very high standard" thanks to their "excellent communication skills".
