“Science Fair” Is the Documentary Every Kid Should See with Their Parents

Read next

Whether you have a junior scientist at home or you’re hoping to get your kids excited about STEM, a new documentary premiering this fall is going to be a must-see for the whole family. This exclusive trailer for Science Fair will make you instantly fall in love with the amazing teens vying to win the “Olympics of science fairs.”

Science Fair follows the story of nine teenagers working to win top honors at the acclaimed International Science and Engineering Fair. Although it seems like a mash-up of Silicon Valley and Best In Show, this is a 100 percent true story that will give you all the feels and plenty of good laughs.

These kids are among the smartest and as one teen explains, any one of them has the power to change the world, which is why it is so inspiring to watch an entire convention center full of these incredible young minds. The awkward moments that come with being a teen, let alone a genius teen, give the film its heart, but what will really move you and your family is the thought that the next generation really has the power to make the world better.

The movie, which was an Official Selection at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, opens Sep. 14 in New York and releases wide across the country on Sep. 21.
