Aspiring young engineers from a school in Etwall were given the chance to give their engineering solutions to Toyota's manufacturing management team.

The students from John Port School attended a Toyota event as part of a Young Engineers' Club that was set up in 2000.

The initiative sees Toyota engineers visit schools every week during the school year to work alongside pupils and teachers on a variety of engineering challenges.

Throughout the year, pupils have been encouraged to research, plan, design, test and evaluate a range of solutions to common engineering problems whilst allowing the Toyota to recognise all of the students' achievements.

Nick Freeman, Assistant General Manager, External Affairs, Toyota Manufacturing UK said: "We are committed to supporting education within our local communities and promoting interest in engineering as a career.

"The Young Engineers' Clubs allow us to work closely with local schools and it was fantastic to see the results of pupils' efforts today.
