The team from Amazon stopped by as part of a programme aimed at inspiring the next generation of engineers.

Children were given the chance to imagine the "future innovator" in themselves by spending time at 'Camp Amazon' set up in the hospital.

They engaged in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) activities and learned about technology.

Victor Pulido, site leader at the Amazon Fulfilment Centre in Peterborough, said: "Our team had a great time with the boys and girls at Addenbrooke's Hospital and it was lovely to see how enthusiastic they are about STEM."
