A milkshake-making bicycle is being used to encourage teenagers in rural and indigenous communities to think about a career in science and technology. Students from the University of Wollongong's engineering and information sciences faculty hit the road on Tuesday, taking their hands-on demonstrations - including a bike that uses pedal power to make frothy shakes and a driver training racing simulator - to schools around the state in a bid to demonstrate what can be achieved with a degree in science or mathematics.
