The award ceremony for youngsters who have completed their Youth STEMM Award took place at The Forum in Norwich.

The award is given to students aged 13 to 18 who log STEMM-related activities and aims to encourage the next generation of scientists, doctors, engineers and more.

The awards were launched in April 2015 across 22 state schools in Norfolk and was originally just for girls and young women, but it expanded to any gender in September 2016.

Astronomer Mark Thompson and wildlife biologist/presenter Lizzie Daly attended Tuesday's celebration.

Samantha Fox, director and co-founder of the Youth STEMM Awards, said the event "went fantastically and was a real success".

Young people who have shown their commitment to science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM) were honoured at an awards ceremony.
