Pupils from six schools have gathered at Wymondham High Academy for a day of science and technology challenges.
It was part of a 'Faraday Challenge Day' promoting STEM (science, technology, maths and engineering) subjects run by the Institute of Engineering and Technology. The challenges were focused on designing aids for Britain's America's Cup team using the BBC's micro:bit coding platform. Holly Margerison-Smith, from the institute, said: 'There is huge demand for new engineers and technicians and we're confident that this will challenge young people's perceptions of engineers.'
