If the winners of these STEM student awards are any indication, the future of science and engineering in Australia is pretty bright.
It’s an exciting time for the STEM students revealed as winners for the 2018 BHP Billiton Foundation Science and Engineering Awards.
The awards highlight innovative science and engineering projects from students across Australia and seek to “promote the next generation of STEM leaders”.
Winners and runners-up for the competition’s three categories (Engineering, Investigations and Innovation to Market) were picked from a field of 26 finalists. Although competition was fierce across the board, many entrants cited a desire to make the world a better place and an inquisitive mind as the motivations for their projects.
