Magic Makers – Kids changing the world
Looking for inspiration as you start the new year back at school?
Here's a heads-up on a new US TV series called MAGIC MAKERS: highlighting the next generation of science and tech innovators who are addressing the world's toughest problems.
Take, for example, Jack Andraka, a 16-year-old who created an accurate, cost-effective tool for early cancer detection. He is just one of nine exceptionally smart and talented young men and women on the show.
The campaign is currently live here, running through the next month. and you can check out the video to get a better idea of who's involved.
The producers are currently crowd-funding and seeking sponsorships toward the $75K needed to produce a professional-grade pilot episode – I wish them well with this as these programmes capture the ideas that can inspire both teachers and students alike. Please help spread the word.
