With the planet facing multiple environmental threats, brilliant young minds from around the world are working on innovative solutions to stave off crises in their communities. The brightest of these students have one destination in mind to showcase their work: the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, the world's largest high school science competition. Focusing on a small handful of teens representing Hawaii, Indonesia and India, Inventing Tomorrow follows their journeys as they work out the intricate mechanics of their presentations in the lead-up to the competition. These students represent the hope and ingenuity of a burgeoning generation; winning the competition may be their immediate goal, but changing the world for the better is the ultimate prize.
