Five school project teams have won awards at the OpenDataNI Make-it Challenge.

The Make-it competition challenged young people to use datasets from the Northern Ireland government open data portal, OpenDataNI, and create a visualisation of the data.

Students were asked to use digital fabrication techniques such as 3D printing, laser cutting, milling and electronics in the process.

The five winning projects included Belfast Health and Fitness - Lagan College, Belfast. The integrated school also won for a second project on A&E waiting times.

Fort Hill Integrated College, Lisburn, won for a project about tourism in Belfast.

And Strathearn school in the east of the city won for a project on historic parks and gardens.

Holy Trinity College in Cookstown, Co Tyrone, received an award for agricultural data.
