Budding young inventor
A Tecoma primary student has won the opportunity to make her own invention a reality after taking out the top prize in ClickView Aussie Student Invention award. 11-year-old Daisy Taylor from Tecoma Primary School invented a wearable flotation device designed with non-verbal autistic children in mind. The T-shirt – called the Sea Tee - features a flotation device and a sensor that allows children to play and swim safely; even if they can’t communicate they are tired. Daisy said while her cousin Tim helped inspire the idea, she wanted to help people with her invention.
