Proximity sensor cane for the blind… Thanks Andres!
Three schoolgirls in the West Bank have developed a life-changing device for the blind. It’s an advanced cane called “Stick-tech”, and they’re taking it all the way to the U.S. to show it off: They’ve been chosen from over six million applicants world wide to take part in the International Science Fair. Nour Odeh reports from the Askar refugee camp.

Thats the science fair I was close to going to. I was the winner for my county (Broward) in the engineering division witch led me to the state science fair in Orlando FL (An Affiliate of Intel ISEF). If I won that then I would have traveled to California.
