What if you were transported to an isolated island and had to solve a bunch of challenges with just the stuff you could find in the landscape around you and an in an old abandoned factory? Come see a film about 4 scientists who do just that. Removed from their laboratories full of high-tech instruments and extensive supplies, they must rely on their knowledge and creativity and cooperation to complete their challenge tasks in just 3 days using only a simple toolkit and native materials. It’s amazing what they can do: make paper and ink, scale maps, a recording device and a microscope, a weather station, portable clock, insect repellant and more. There just may be a challenge for you and the others who watch the film with you too, and we dare you to get it figured out before you go home!
Ages 8 & up.
