Science Fair FINAL Play Button

Delving into the lives of the teenagers responsible for future scientific and technological advancements, Science Fair follows nine high school students from around the globe as they compete at the International Science and Engineering Fair. On their journey to win Best in Fair amongst 1,700 of the brightest teens from 78 different countries, these exceptional young men and women navigate rivalries, setbacks, and hormones. Highlighting the confusing purgatory between childhood and adulthood, the stories of these students demonstrate how science fairs cultivate the minds of some of the nation’s most intelligent youth from many different backgrounds. Discussion with Charlotte and Emily Keeley (The Boston Consulting Group), Jennie Chiu (UVA), moderated by Matthew Shields (CHS)
