“By the end, as you dry your eyes, it’s their futures you want them to win – as scientists, optimists and change agents – not just a science fair prize.” – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
Meet passionate teenage innovators from around the globe who are creating cutting-edge solutions to confront the world’s environmental threats – found right in their own backyards – while navigating the doubts and insecurities that mark adolescence. Inventing Tomorrow follows six young scientists from Indonesia, Hawaii, India and Mexico as they tackle some of the most complex environmental issues facing humanity today. Each student is preparing original scientific research that he or she will present and defend at ISEF, the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair. Take a journey with these inspiring teens as they prepare their projects for the largest convening of high school scientists in the world, an exciting but nerve-racking experience which will force them to face their own fears as they advance one step closer to their dreams of winning a prize and just maybe helping to save the planet! (Dir. by Laura Nix, 2018, USA, 87 mins., Not Rated).
