Three experts judge ten young scientists as they spin tall-but-true tales of climate change, a cure for cancer, the search for life elsewhere, and much more - in 3 powerpoint-free minutes each!
While the judges deliberate, we'll be treated to stories about alien life…on and beyond Earth by Andrew Steele of the Carnegie Institution for Science.
Come cheer on these brave souls – vote for your favorite – and journey with them to the cutting edge of exploring Earth and beyond!
