Nine high school students from disparate corners of the globe navigate rivalries, setbacks, and hormones on their quest to win the international science fair. Only one can be named “Best in Fair.”


Director's Bio

Cristina Costantini directed and produced SCIENCE FAIR, her first feature documentary. She won an Alfred I. duPont–Columbia University Award and has been nominated for two Emmys. Before attending Yale University, Cristina was a science fair nerd. As a freshman in high school, she placed fourth in her category at the international science fair—it’s all been downhill from there.

Darren Foster directed and produced SCIENCE FAIR, his first feature documentary. He’s won a Peabody Award and an Alfred I. duPont–Columbia University Award, and he’s received several Emmy nominations as a TV producer and journalist. Darren co-founded Muck Media, a production company based in Los Angeles and Lisbon. His high school science fair project proved Venus flytraps (Dionaea muscipula) like hamburgers.
