Science Fair: Changing the World, One Foam Core Board at a Time
Location: Redstone Theater
Presented in collaboration with the World Science Festival
Science Fair. Dir. Cristina Costantini and Darren Foster. 2018, 90 mins. DCP. New York Premiere. Every year, the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) brings together high school students from all over the globe to show us what they are made of: grit, curiosity, determination, intelligence, and a desire to leave the world a better place than they found it. In their Sundance Festival Favorite Award–winning documentary Science Fair, Cristina Costantini, a self-described “science fair geek” herself, set out with her partner Darren Foster to follow several ISEF hopefuls, from the germ of their ideas to the search for mentors to the heady days of reckoning at the science fair itself. Come see the New York premiere of this film and stay for the talk back as we celebrate the next generation of scientific innovation. Recommended for ages 6+
