“It felt like this is the cavalry that’s come to save us from ourselves. These extraordinary, driven, eco-compassionate children are cancelling the apocalypse.” – Scott Beggs, The Nerdist


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. Take a journey with these inspiring teens as they prepare to present their cutting-edge scientific research at the largest convening of high school scientists in the world, the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF), a program of the Society for Science and the Public. Framed against the backdrop of the severe environmental threats our planet faces, the documentary leaves audiences of all ages with a sense of hopefulness, inspired by the solutions-based optimism of these young innovators.
