Aspiring inventor to represent the Highlands

Swan Eleanor

A Bowral teenager is one of 24 young people selected to take part in the National Questacon Invention Convention in Canberra.

15 year old Eleanor Swan will attend a series of workshops aimed at developing creative design and innovation skills.

She says it's an amazing opportunity to meet like-minded people and work with some of Australia’s leading innovators and entrepreneurs.

This year the delegates will develop a prototype to address problems and opportunities around the theme of ‘Liveable Communities’.

The Convention is taking place between January 14 - 18 at The Ian Potter Foundation Technology Learning Centre.
