20-min pre-show presentation by Caitlin Sullivan, Director, Outreach and Equity Programs at the Society for Science & the Public

Presented as part of the 2019 National Week of Science on Screen®.

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 the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair — the Olympics of high school science fairs. Framed against the backdrop of the severe environmental threats we now face, this powerful documentary immerses the audience in a global view of the planetary crisis, through the eyes of the generation that will be affected by it most. (Note adapted from Fishbowl Films.) DIR/PROD Laura Nix; PROD Diane Becker, Melanie Miller. U.S., 2018, color, 87 min plus a 20-min intro. NOT RATED
