The placements of Fiona Walls and Matthew Rawlings was part of the annual schools work experience programme managed by Wymondham-based The Exchange.

Fiona said: “I was really attracted to a science-based placement as I would like to eventually pursue science as a career. It has been really enjoyable doing tests in Fugro's geological lab."

Matthew added: “I was equally attracted by a science placement and have enjoyed working with the software side of the business and working on GPS survey systems.”
