Closing remarks & Q&A with Peggy James Nacke, Fair Director, The Academy of Science - St. Louis Science Fair, one of the nation's largest regional and free, K-12 STEM fairs.

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.
