An affectionate and supremely entertaining celebration of nerds everywhere. Follow one inspiring mentor and nine dedicated students as they compete against more than 1,700 other students from 75 countries in the annual Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF). The prize? Bragging rights, international recognition—oh, and $75,000 dollars. At a time when politicians deny climate change and mock science, meet the new generation of scientists eager to make a difference and become the heroes most likely to carry us forward.
