Every one of the Laureates should be understood not only as a STEM champion but as a person, too. It is through this site we can do that, it is through this site Americans will have the opportunity to not only understand the technology behind an invention like the Polaroid camera, but also to uncover the unique story about the fellow American who brought us that groundbreaking technological advancement.
The site you see today is just the beginning. We still have hundreds of Laureates who need their own “Profile” biographies. We have entire classes of Laureates who need their own biopics. Our “Timeline” is completely customizable and we would like to add modifiers to the filter system. The “Stories” section will expand monthly with engaging content that will capture the imagination of our visitors.
