The Mind of the InnovatorAudio currently not available for this program.
Innovators begin with real-world problems and find solutions through technology, imagination, hard work and a drive to make our lives better. This special program from Richard Paul and the National Science Foundation looks at innovators creating a mesmerizing array of inventions that might improve our lives in ways beyond our imagination. Included is a profile of a group of graduate students using nanotechnology to create a pen that can turn off cancer cells -- and a DNA diagnostic machine that can read your DNA and give your doctor a complete disease assessment in under five minutes.
