A powerful sixty minute presentation that brings together a number of award winning scientists who encourage the viewer to take a critical look at the world of science. Packed with illustrations and award winning graphics. Beginning with an overview of the great thinkers from the past, we see how they were captivated with a passion to discover and invent, changing history and opening doors for the scientific discoveries of today.
Presented in a chapter by chapter format to aid viewing, four groups of science students embark on a journey to discover ‘birds in flight’, the astonishing world of ‘machines in nature’ the complex workings of ‘the giraffe’s neck’ and the wonders and complexity of ‘DNA’.
If future generations of scientists are to be successful in their research and discoveries, our young people must be encouraged to follow the evidence – wherever that may lead…
