West Bank invention to help blind

Schoolgirls have developed an advanced new cane that vibrates when near an obstacle.



    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.
