A group of 10 high school students from the Hunter who were successful in obtaining a Federal Scholarship from Defence were supported to pursue their innovative ideas and complete STEM based projects through to the commercialisation stage with industry and business education, assistance and guidance.
Projects range from a mind controlled prosthetic hands through to rockets, drones and autonomous trolleys.
The program concludes with 10 students pitching their inventions and commercialisation ideas to industry, business and community leaders from around the Hunter on Tuesday the 8th of May at the Business Centre, 6 Dick Street, Newcastle West.
