On Thursday 17th May, Hannah Black of Year 8, was presented with a certificate of Merit by local federal lower house member for the electorate of Goldstein, The Honourable Tim Wilson. Hannah was invited to participate at the Goldstein morning tea for her work in developing a functioning bionic arm.

Hannah has featured her bionic arm in the Herald Sun, in Herald Sun Kids News, on ABCMe, on the radio and on ABC Behind the News. Hannah created her bionic arm in response to an inquiry project and developed a working prototype over the school holidays using her own pocket money.

Congratulations to Hannah for this well-deserved recognition.
