Biography: science, technology & engineering; Entrepreneurship; Children's & Educational
Elon Musk is an inspirational role model for young entrepreneurs, breaking boundaries and revolutionising the tech-world. He is also the real-life inspiration for the Iron Man series of films, starring Robert Downey Junior. From his humble beginnings in apartheid South Africa, he showed himself to be an exceptionally bright child, and overcame brutal bullying to become the world's most exciting entrepreneur, founding PayPal, SpaceX, Tesla and Solar City.

He has emerged as something of a superhero-like figure for today's generation of children. He's not only seen as an entrepreneur in the spirit of a Steve Jobs but as an inventor and bold thinker. He's the guy offering children the possibility of a brighter, more exciting future and has come to symbolize innovation and optimism.
