Meet passionate teenage innovators from around the globe who are creating cutting-edge solutions to confront the world’s environmental threats – 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 – right in their own backyards. Each student is preparing original scientific research that he or she will defend at ISEF, the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair. Framed against the backdrop of the severe environmental threats we now face, we immerse the audience in a global view of the planetary crisis, through the eyes of the generation that will be affected by it most.
Inventing Tomorrow is part of our Horizon Hot Docs program; sharing untold stories from the fringes, exploring individual and community identity and celebrating and giving a platform to courageous change makers and activists.
