Three schoolgirls in the occupied West Bank have developed a life-changing device for the blind.

It is an advanced cane called "Stick-tech" - that vibrates when near an obstacle, thus alerting the blind.

The girls have been chosen from over six million applicants world wide to take part in the International Science Fair.
