A Bury St Edmunds school has hosted an event for 120 young people who are set to become the scientists and engineers of the future.

Qwerky Physics 2014, which is an inter-school competition for gifted and talented Year Nine pupils in the East of England, was held at King Edward VI School on Wednesday.

A total of 30 state and independent schools attended, bringing their most able physicists.

The students applied their classroom knowledge to a series of practical problem-solving challenges. The event, which is led by the Institute of Physics, the Stimulating Physics Network and the Ogden Trust, also included the ‘WOW lecture’ – a demonstration lecture given by the Physics Roadshow.
