Dozens of Norfolk sixth formers attended an inaugural event in Norwich which immersed them in the world of sciences and maths.
More than 70 students attended the Youth STEMM Award Gold Conference at the University of East Anglia (UEA) last week, which focused on careers in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM).
There were talks from professionals, tours of UEA and challenging workshops.
The Youth STEMM Award is a scheme for students in years nine to 13 designed to inspire the next generation of pupils in those subjects.
