Pupils from a Norfolk school have been awarded for their efforts in designing an interactive toy inspired by animals.
A team from Reepham High School and College recently took part in the national design and enterprise challenge, Design Ventura.
The group of teenagers were awarded second place for their design 'Bluprint' - an interactive toy with pop out shapes inspired by animals that can be combined in different ways to create imaginative, fun characters.
Design Ventura challenges students aged 13-16 to meet a real-life design brief. More than 47,000 young people have participated in Design Ventura since 2010 and it is run by the Design Museum in partnership with Deutsche Bank's youth engagement programme Born to Be.
Nicole Lovett, head of corporate citizenship UK at Deutsche Bank, said: 'Design Ventura encourages success by combining innovation, entrepreneurial thinking and team collaboration; a model which breeds success in life and business.'
