What inspired you to make this video?
There is a saying that necessity is the mother of invention. It was our shared belief that it’s times like these that this quote is as paramount as ever. There are so many world wide problems right now that need science and innovation to fix. Problems such as Global Warning and the strive for effective alternative energy. These problems will no-doubt require creative and motivated 21st century scientists and engineers to solve; individuals who we believe the world and specifically the U.S. are in lack of currently. As five friends who love playing basketball together, we were inspired to create this video so that we could in turn share our passion with others and hopefully intrigue some people that may have never liked science to give it a second look. Who knows, maybe some of those very people will be ones who find the cure for cancer!
