Directed by: Cristina Costantini   Darren Foster

Science Fair follows nine high school students from different parts of the world as they make their way to the International Science and Engineering Fair, which is essentially the Super Bowl of science fairs. As 1,700 of the smartest, quirkiest teens from 78 different countries face off, they each hope to win scholarships, grants, jobs, or the coveted $75,000 top prize. The stakes are incredibly high. This inspiring film follows these particular students as they prepare for the 2017 ISEF. Their projects range from researching brain function during risky behavior to arsenic detectors and a new type of airplane. While we may have preconceived notions about science geeks, this documentary shows they come from a wide variety of backgrounds and personalities (one is hilariously obsessed with trap music). After all, these incredible young geniuses could literally save the world.
