Science Fair (Film and Discussion)

From National Geographic Documentary Films and winner of the 2018 inaugural Sundance Film Festival Favorite Award, Science Fair follows nine high school students from around the globe as they navigate rivalries, setbacks, triumphs — and, inevitably, hormones — on their journey to compete at the 2017 International Science and Engineering Fair. Facing off against 1,700 of the smartest, quirkiest teens from 78 different countries, only one will earn the Gordon E. Moore Award as Best of the Best. A post-screening discussion with 2012 award winner Jack Andraka will illuminate the excitement of the competition.
(This film screening and panel discussion is made possible in part by support from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation.)
