Molly Livingstone never did well at science, but that hasn’t stopped her from appreciating it. Here at the Institute for Medical Research Israel-Canada (IMRIC) she is able to witness first-hand, the innovative breakthroughs changing the face of medicine, on a daily basis. Living in Israel, Molly has the opportunity of visiting the IMRIC labs, talking with the students and faculty about their latest research, and getting to know the people behind these great minds.

The Next Einstein Contest 2014

The Next Einstein Contest is back again for its second year and already the innovative ideas are streaming in. Just like last year, you have the opportunity to share your great concepts and the possibility to win big.

First place is $10,000 CAD and the chance to utilize Start-up and Entrepreneurial services from leading international business law and litigation firm Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP. Additional prizes include a $5,000 CAD scholarship to Draper University of Heroes, a $5,000 fellowship to the Digital Media Zone (DMZ) at Ryerson University in Toronto, and The Bernard Persiko & Darren Kendal Merit Scholarship valued at up to $15,000 to study at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

There are also weekly prizes to give you that extra push and submit your idea. So what is it? Your idea can be in any field of interest, whether it is scientific, a new app, or maybe a plan to rethink world hunger. We have all been that person watching the news of someone’s great idea and said, “I thought of that too.” So instead of just thinking of it, and then watching someone else make it happen, take this opportunity to put it out there.

The contest ends June 8. For more info check out the official website
