Do you know someone who has ever looked at a piece of technology and said, “I can do better!” and then gone out and done it? Or how about the creative thinker who saw a problem and came up with the sort of solution that makes you wonder, “Why didn’t I think of that?”
The Mid-Island Science Technology and Innovation Council (MISTIC) wants to hear about them.
