A team of young engineers from a Manor Park school received a government award for their performance in a national science and technology competition.
Dersi_Coders from Dersingham Primary School achieved the HM Government Award for Insight into Learning at the First Lego League national finals in Bristol.
The competition for nine to 16-year-olds tasks teams to build a robot, to tackle a series of missions and create an innovative solution to a real-world problem.
This year's challenge was about observing how cities and buildings grow, thrive, and change.
Dersi_Coders won the Newham regional final to progress to the national event, which involved around 500 young people demonstrating their skills in robotics, computer programming, teamwork, research, problem solving and communication.
