2008 Franklin Institute Awards

For close to two centuries the Franklin Institute has honored individuals whose critical advances and innovations in science and technology have directly and positively impacted and enhanced the quality of human life and deepened our understanding of the universe. This year we shine a light on eleven individuals whose work and careers serve as role models for our youth, helping to ignite that spark of curiosity which has led to so many American discoveries and inventions. The future economic success of this country depends on Americans keeping pace with technological and scientific change.

Celebrate Science at The Franklin Institute beginning April 15th.
