Aiden Fuller’s tinkering with technology has just earned him 2nd place in Australia at the Young ICT Explorer’s Competition. 

Young ICT Explorer’s is a non-profit competition, which encourages school students to create their best Information and Communication Technology (ICT) related projects.

Aiden, a Year 12 student at HVGS, spent 2 months developing a remote electronic system, accessible via SMS message.

“My project can change outputs, data log inputs, find its own latitude and longitude and return desired values to the user,” Aiden said.

“This kind of device would be useful in industrial machinery, particularly for companies that hire out such machinery. By installing the device, the owner can calculate an invoice based on the hourly use of the machine. And if it goes missing or stolen, a user can find its location with a simple SMS.”

Aiden has a bright future in technology because he was also recently awarded the Heffron Technologist of Tomorrow University Scholarship.
