Following the sad death of Cambridge scientist, Professor Stephen Hawking, the BBC interviewed students for a special tribute. Interviews included several of the students at Cambridge Academy for Science & Technology (CAST), with a video tribute now viewable online.

In the BBC Newsround interviews, the students - Ellie-Anne, Meriel, Ethan, Jacob and Max - spoke about how Professor Hawking inspired them to pursue science and how they will remember him.
