HELP US INSPIRE THE NEXT GENERATION OF SCIENTISTS!
Planet3 is on a bold mission to empower the next generation to solve the complex problems facing our planet by taking science education to the next frontier. We believe that what we do with our planet in the next 50 years will determine the fate of the next 10,000, and that starts with science education. That’s where you come in.
Think about it, from Galileo to Goodall, Ada Lovelace to Tesla and Bell, the great scientists of all time have been explorers, risk-takers, entrepreneurs, change agents, adventurers, and truth seekers.
Check out our Co-founder and Chief Science Officer, Dr. Albert Lin, give an inspiring speech at the D.C. March for Science! Video footage courtesy of Earth Day Network.

Sometimes it’s good to look at things in a new way. For example, have you ever thought about how scientists are really explorers, risk-takers, adventurers and change-agents? Like the scientists featured below…
Determined to prove a deep connection between man and nature, this young explorer put her personal safety aside, packed her gear, and trekked into the jungle. She developed such profound relationships with the wildlife she studied that she was embraced as part of their family. History will remember her as a game-changer who forever altered how we observe nature to learn more about ourselves. Share now to show the world what a scientist really looks like!
Ada Lovelace’s mother strongly encouraged Ada’s education in mathematics and logic because she believed it would help steer her away from developing the temperament of her estranged father, Lord Byron. However, this young dreamer was fascinated by her father’s work, which inspired her to imagine what grander creations could come from her mathematical breakthroughs. She lived in a time before the advent of electricity, yet is credited as the first visionary of the digital age. Share now to show the world what a scientist really looks like!
He started out as a tinkerer, teaching himself all the skills he would ever need to make his dreams come to life in the real world. Today he stands as one of the most influential minds in the world, and his spirit to invent and innovate in the best interest of mankind is going to save the natural resources of our planet, and maybe even help us colonize another.

This pioneer always loved to count. As a little girl, she remembered counting everything she could, and it didn’t slip her father’s attention, who moved their family so Katherine could get an advanced education. And for good reason: this pioneer graduated high school at 14 and had a college degree by 18. Even with the advent of electronic computers, astronauts like John Glenn trusted the work of this human computer to sign-off on his missions. Her love for counting forever changed our relationship with the sky. Share now to show the world what a scientist really looks like!
Neil deGrasse Tyson
This cosmologist and astrophysicist has brought complex scientific theory to the front and center of our culture, with television and radio programs that reinforce the importance of scientific literacy in our world. Beyond his personality, this champion of the sciences played a key role in reviving the Hayden Planetarium, and has served as top advisor to the American presidency on aerospace and space exploration.

This pioneer had a fascination with the micro-world from a young age. Inspired by her father’s passion for science, she followed in his footsteps and became the first black American woman to earn a Ph.D. in chemistry. Her work advanced the medical community’s understanding of the human heart, uncovering the effects of cholesterol on the mechanics of the heart as well as the effects of sugars and other nutrients on the health of arteries.

Perhaps it’s no coincidence that this scientist was born exactly 300 years after Galileo. His impact on our understanding of our own cosmic history began as he fell in love with theory and drawing connections in the universe. Today, we have him to thank for profound advancements in the laws of the universe and how we can watch world’s light-years away to learn more about ourselves.

As a kid, this Nobel Prize winning chemist converted one of his family’s seldom-used bathrooms into his personal laboratory, where he’d conduct chemistry experiments. He carried this curiosity throughout his youth and eventually coined an idea that some compounds found in industrial and household products were having an adverse effect on the ozone layer. Because of his work, mankind has a new appreciation for its stewardship over our planet. Share now to show the world what a scientist really looks like!
