All Ages

Enjoy this special screening of National Geographic Documentary Films’ Science Fair, an enchanting celebration of brilliantly curious young scientists. Follow nine high school students from around the globe as they navigate rivalries and setbacks on their journey to compete at the International Science and Engineering Fair. As 1,700 of the smartest, quirkiest teens from 78 different countries face off, only one will be named Best in Fair. Directed by the Emmy-nominated documentary filmmaking team of Cristina Costantini and Darren Foster, Science Fair offers a front seat to the victories, defeats, and motivations of an incredible group of young men and women who are on a path to change their lives, and the world, through science.

The screening will be followed by a conversation with filmmakers Cristina Costantini and Darren Foster and other special guests from the film moderated by The New York Times journalist Nellie Bowles. 

Nellie Bowles covers tech and Internet culture from San Francisco for The New York Times. Before joining paper she was a correspondent for “VICE News Tonight.” She has written for California Sunday, Recode, The Guardian, and the San Francisco Chronicle. 

Be sure to check out the incredible exhibits made by Dos Pueblos Engineering Academy’s youth engineers. Presented in conjunction with this screening, the exhibits are on view in Osher Gallery 1, Black Box.
