TechLauncher is an ANU initiative, which enables 300+ students from any discipline to work on real projects with clients from industry, academia, and government every semester.
We’ve been doing this for well over 15 years. In 2020, things had to change as we all found ourselves in an unprecedented time. But when things get tough, we must re-imagine how we do things to succeed. We did just that. This year’s TechLauncher teams will showcase online.
The showcase will be held over three themed sessions. Students will present their work, followed by a Q&A session on how the team propose to use technology to bring great ideas to life and have a positive impact on our society.
