Hailed by critics as “immensely likeable,” “brilliant and quirky, ” and an “ode to the teenage science geeks on who our future depends,” 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 fair. Facing off against 1,700 of the smartest, quirkiest teens from 78 different countries, only one will be named Best in Fair. The film, from Fusion Media and directed by the DuPont Award-winning and Emmy-nominated documentary filmmaking team Cristina Costantini and Darren Foster, 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. Several of the film’s subjects are from Louisville and their school DuPont Manual is featured in the film. Directed by Cristina Costantini and Darren Foster.
