REX is an astonishing ‘walking machine’. It contains 29 computers (brain), 10 power units (muscles), hundreds of wires (nerves) and a frame (skeleton).
We believe it’s time for all of us – scientists and non-scientists alike – to do what we can the help science, and society go even further
DSM created Science Can Change the World because as a science-based company we’ve long been inspired by the many innovators working around the world, often alone, often lacking the resources, support and encouragement they need to put their solutions into practice, but carrying on.
Clearly we weren’t alone. Our Science Can Change the World video about the unsung heroes of science quickly racked up over 5 million views.
Now, through the Bright Minds Challenge, we’re going further. With our partners and collaborators, we’re helping to channel this widespread appreciation for science into much-needed support and exposure for scientists’ emerging ideas and solutions.
Stay tuned for stories of a new generation of unsung science heroes as our Bright Minds, and their supporters, begin to make history.
You just need big ideas and an even bigger heart...
We hear much about the world’s problems, but less about the people who continue to solve them. Here are just some inspirational stories about unsung scientific heroes doing extraordinary things for our society today.
Are you a future pioneer?
Enter the Bright Minds Challenge for the chance to get money-can’t-buy support from a team of experts chosen just for your project.
Science will always be influenced by extraordinary individuals. Some of them, like Pasteur, are icons. Others, like Rosalind Franklyn, remained in relative obscurity for many years.
When fate eventually chose to smile on them, they grasped the opportunity and changed the world for the better.
Aside from their desire to make a difference, they all share one other essential characteristic that we admire: Grit. These pioneers of science made real sacrifices, fought through tragedy and adversity…and emerged undaunted and unbowed.
Pioneers of science, we salute you.
