"Science Fair is so funny and so moving, it almost seems too good to be true." - Carly Mallenbaum, USA Today

"The funniest movie of the year." - Kevin Fallon, Daily Beast

"Supremely entertaining. An ode to the teenage science geeks on whom the future depends." - Peter DeBruge, Variety

Hailed by critics as "immensely likeable" and "brilliant and quirky," and winner of the audience award at Sundance and SXSW, National Geographic Documentary Films' Science Fair follows nine high school students from around the globe as they navigate rivalries, setbacks and, of course, hormones, on their journey to compete at the International Science and Engineering Fair. As 1,700 of the smartest, quirkiest teens from 78 different countries face off, only one will be named Best in Fair. The film offers a front seat to the victories, defeats and motivations of an incredible group of young men and women who are on a path to change their lives, and the world, through science.

Presented as part of Science on Screen® - An initiative of the COOLIDGE CORNER THEATRE, with major support from the ALFRED P. SLOAN FOUNDATION.
