‘Inventing Tomorrow’ to screen at Madelyn Helling Library
The documentary “Inventing Tomorrow” will be screening at the Madelyn Helling Library at 4 p.m. July 12 in the Gene Albaugh Community Room. The film highlights passionate teenage innovators from around the globe creating cutting-edge solutions to confront the world’s environmental threats — found right in their own backyards—while navigating the doubts and insecurities that mark adolescence. These inspiring teens prepare their projects for the largest convening of high school scientists in the world: The Intel International Science and Engineering Fair. Free popcorn will be provided for attendees. This event is a collaboration with POV, the award-winning independent nonfiction film series on PBS. (www.pbs.org/pov)
