STROUD High School student Edith-Clare Hall, who is hoping for a career in engineering, took part in a marine technology course during the summer break.
Edith, 15, learnt about naval architecture and marine engineering during the weeklong course at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow in July.
She joined around 40 students who worked in teams and were tasked with designing a radio-controlled replica of a large cargo ship to transport goods from Glasgow to Singapore.
The programme was designed through a partnership between The Smallpiece Trust and the university.
Dr Andrew Cave, chief executive of The Smallpiece Trust, said: "Students are provided with the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the importance of marine technology, concentrating on areas such as naval architecture, ship design and off-shore construction."
