Projects including solar powered streetlights and sensors to help elderly people take out the trash won an AARNet sponsored prize at yesterday’s Young Scientist Awards.
Run by the Science Teachers’ Association of NSW, the awards see students across the state compete for prizes in the categories of working scientifically, working technologically and working mathematically.
School-age children from Kindergarten to Year 12 can submit any kind of scientific investigation or design, or construct a working model of an innovative device or application.

AARNet is delighted to be involved with the awards, which play an important role in helping encourage future generations of scientists and engineers.
One project in each category—and for each age group—was awarded an AARNet sponsored prize for their use of electronic communications to solve a problem.
AARNet’s Christine Le was a judge at the awards—a tough job, thanks to the quality of the entries: “The standards were so high; it’s easy to underestimate what young people are capable of when it comes to using technology and electronic communications,” she said.
AARNet extends its congratulations to all the Young Scientist Awards winners, in particular to the following winners of the AARNet Electronic Communications awards:

The major winning entries from the Young Scientist Awards can progress to the national BHP Billiton Science and Engineering Awards.
