Every year, more than 1,700 students from 75 countries compete in the annual International Science and  Engineering Fair (ISEF), a highly competitive showcase of the world’s top young scientific minds. Selected from millions of students who qualified through sanctioned events to reach the international competition, these finalists are competing for the coveted top prize that, as one previous winner explains, “will change your life in ways you won’t even comprehend.” Science Fair follows one mentor and nine students from around the world as they prepare their projects and teams for the 2017 ISEF event in Los Angeles.

Supremely entertaining. An ode to the teenage science geeks on whom our future depends.


Directed by DuPont Award-winning and Emmy-nominated documentary filmmaking team Cristina Costantini and Darren Foster. Winner of the audience award at Sundance and SXSW.

The Georgia Frontiere Cinema for Students Program is sponsored by Lucia Rosenbloom and Chip Rosenbloom
(in honor of Georgia Frontiere),
with support from the Jane M. & Bruce P. Robert Charitable Foundation.

Funding for Bus Transportation is made possible through a generous gift of the Hawkins Foundation.

This free screening of Science Fair: What’s the Big Idea? for area schools and student groups is a partnership presentation of Cinema St. Louis and The Academy of Science – St. Louis.
