About this event

The 2020s are going to be a defining decade for the next century.

Not only are we at the cusp of a climate change turning point, but the way we think about community, economy, and innovation is also changing fast.

There is a bit of urgency for us to ensure that we take actions now to prevent a climate disaster, and work towards building more resilient communities.

And technology is at the heart of this urgency, to help us take ideas that will shape the future and turn them into a reality.

TechLauncher is a program that allows ANU students to do exactly this.

Join us in this showcase and learn how 300+ engineering and computer science students, working on 30+ projects, are helping us forge a future we want to live in.

You’ll get to meet each team and ask them questions about their work one-on-one, all online.
