Unsung Heroes of Science: 2020 shortlist

Who has history forgotten? Whose story has been left out of the textbooks? Whose work gets overlooked?

This year we had more entries than ever before so we’d like to say a massive “thank you” to everyone who shared the competition and took the time to make a video. We can’t share them all but we hope you’ll enjoy our shortlist of 24 videos from around the world. Find your favourite and share it with your friends and family – in addition to the main prizes, the most-watched video by noon on 29th June will win the coveted Audience Award.
