Inventing Tomorrow

  • Language talk: Dutch

Six passionate teens prepare for the world’s biggest contest for secondary school students: the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF). Motivated by problems and experiences in their very own backyards, they develop ideas and cutting-edge solutions to the world’s environmental threats. They travel to Los Angeles to participate in ISEF and meet thousands of peers from around the world. A sense of global brotherhood and sisterhood quickly develops in an effort to improve the world.


Cars that run on hydrogen, edible coffee cups and heat-reducing city benches: sustainable innovations are also being driven by students in Nijmegen. How do we organize education in such a way that students are stimulated to come up with new ideas? As a teacher, how do you ensure that new innovations arise in your classroom? Hear from the best experts on these questions: innovative students themselves. 

Together with the Hogeschool Arnhem-Nijmegen (HAN), we are looking at these questions, inspired by Inventing Tomorrow. New innovations are also pitched here by students. For example, the GRØNNEHAGE project is a newly designed city bench that reduces heat stress because the backrest forms a planted wall. The Edibles company, run by young entrepreneurial students, sells edible plates and cups as an alternative to disposable cardboard tableware. And in the HAN Hydromotive Team, fourteen students work each year on improving the hydrogen car they have designed themselves. The goal is to be able to drive as far as possible using as little fuel as possible, while only emitting oxygen and water. Be inspired and discover how these innovations came about during their studies.

This program is open to everyone and particularly interesting for teachers in secondary education, senior secondary vocational education and higher education.
