About the Project
Time left to apply
Through this project, we aim to emphasize the importance of research & science and why scientists should be “influencers” for the youth
by acting out sections of some scientists’ lives in plays.
1. To provide youth with different influential and inspiring people that they can follow.
2. To reveal interesting ways of scientists or the rocky and spotty road they walked to enable participants to empathize more.
3. To indicate that research and science are not only for “a chosen community of scientists”; in fact, it is for everyone who chooses to be a scientist!
4. Moreover, to emphasize that science and research are not only for people who aim to be a scientist, but they are also actually needed and inspiring for somebody who aims to be an artist (insert any job here!) as well.
