One of the hopes for remedying drastic environmental damage is technological innovation. In particular, young peoples' projects are gaining ever greater international attention and support.

Gifted teenagers believe that through science they can find solutions to serious environmental problems that directly threaten their own health and lives. Sáhithí monitors extreme water pollution in his native Bangalore; Jared deals with the contamination of Hawaiian soil by arsenic. Students from Indonesia are developing a filtering system, and classmates from Mexico work on a photocatalytic dye to clean the air of pollutants. Their projects are ambitious and their reward is a chance to present their work at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Los Angeles. Can the young scientists succeed at the world's largest high-school science fair?
