The Canadian Einstein Legacy Project, a series of initiatives that honour the greatest minds and innovators around the globe, is pleased to announce a partnership with Tribal Planet and the Citizen Science platform. Through the power of the Citizen Science platform, this collaboration launches the new home of Finding the Next Einstein, because they believe that the world needs not just one – but millions – of Einsteins.

Jeff Martin, Founder of Tribal Planet, will illuminate Citizen Science and how they have partnered with thought leaders from around the world to create an exciting platform that enables STEAM education outside the classroom, demonstrating the magic of science through experiments, games and play on a mobile device. The platform brings together leading partners in brands, entertainment, mobile technology and the foremost thinkers of today to realize their potential.

The Einstein Gala – a part of the larger Canadian Einstein Legacy Project – is also pleased to announce the participation of Bob Weir of The Grateful Dead. For Albert Einstein, insight did not come from logic or mathematics. Rather, it came from intuition and inspiration like it does for many artists. In fact, Einstein said that the theory of relativity occurred to him by intuition, and that music was the driving force behind that intuition. Linking physics and mathematics to the art of music was critical to Einstein – and to inspire the genius amongst our next Einsteins, Bob Weir will be providing a thought-provoking discussion followed by a performance.
