One of the world’s most famous scientists paid a visit to Fakenham Sixth Form to talk about his life’s work researching behavioural genetics.
Professor Robert Plomin, an American who works at King's College, London, spoke about DNA research and science students had the chance to discuss genetics with him.
A spokesman from the school said: "Fakenham Sixth Form are very grateful to Professor Robert Plomin for sacrificing his time in order to provide students with such an excellent opportunity and influencing the next generation of scientists."
