With all the challenges facing our planet, a film like Inventing Tomorrow is a needed blast of hope. It’s not that the myriad of problems will fade away, but audiences can take comfort that there are young, committed and brilliant scientists who are out there ready to build a better world. The film follows a group of wonderfully awkward yet charismatic high school students who are competing in the annual International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF). These young Einsteins hail from all over the world and share a deep love of science and innovation, but here they are in the hot seat, deeply immersed in a high-pressure competition that could have a huge impact on their future. It’s exciting to watch unfold, as these future leaders grow up a little bit while still being goofy, happy and exceptional kids.
