The engineering students' proposed design for the Mosquito Clamp.
The Mosquito Clamp is most effective when it is placed as a barrier between people and a water source (where mosquitos breed).
UQ engineering students reveal their design for the mosquito clamp.
Members from the team of engineering students demonstrate the electric current that will be used to "zap" mosquitoes.
