A Cinema St. Louis Film Festival Screening

Closing remarks and Q&A with Peggy James Nacke, Fair Director, The Academy of Science-St. Louis Science Fair, one of the nation’s largest regional and free, K-12 STEM fairs.

“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. The students are preparing original scientific research that they will defend at ISEF, the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair. Considered the Olympics of science fairs, ISEF is the largest gathering of high-school scientists in the world, attracting approximately 1,800 finalists from more than 75 countries, regions, and territories. All the finalists want to do a good job, but the heart of the story isn’t about whether they go home with an award. As they take water samples from contaminated lakes, dig up dirt in public parks, board illegal pirate mining ships, and test their experiments in a lab, the students display both a tenacious curiosity and a determination to build a better future. Motivated by the desire to protect their homes, these young people not only ask necessary questions about the problems in their communities but also propose innovative solutions to fix them.

“United by their fondness for intellectual challenges, they exemplify the limitless possibilities created when people use their imagination for altruistic problem-solving and collaborate with others for the greater good.”



Sponsored by Movie Friends of the Ethical Society of St. Louis.

This free screening of Inventing Tomorrow is a partnership presentation of Cinema St. Louis and The Academy of Science – St. Louis.
