Inventing Tomorrow Screening and Panel Discussion

Date & Time


About Simons Foundation Presents
A free event series, Simons Foundation Presents aims to engage a diverse public audience in a wide range of accessible, meaningful and fun science and mathematics programming.

Please join Science Sandbox and filmmaker Laura Nix for a special screening of Inventing Tomorrow, followed by a panel discussion and reception.

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.

The moderated panel discussion will feature the filmmakers Laura Nix (director), Melanie Miller (producer), and Julie Goldman (executive producer). A reception will follow.
