Kingswood High School students have put their engineering skills to the test with the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation’s (ANSTO) Discover Engineering Day.

Organised by Engineers Australia, the May 11 event gave 149 students from 16 schools the chance to meet with some of ANSTO’s inspiring young engineers to complete challenges including designing and building a functioning bionic leg out of basic materials, and building a stable tower out of paper.
