From the Directors and Producers of Emmy Award-Winning Documentary Science Fair inspired by the Sundance Festival favorite and SXSW Audience Award-winning documentary Science Fair comes a new series from directors Cristina Costantini and Darren Foster about the agony and ecstasy of the beloved and brainy teenage subculture of competitive science.
The docuseries follows the ups and downs of some of the most brilliant young innovators, engineers, and scientists on the road to the Big Show — the International Science and Engineering Fair Science Fair: The Series follows a group of inspiring teens who represent a vast spectrum of ISEF hopefuls. In addition to U.S. competitors, the series follows several fierce international contenders who have already beaten out the competition in their own countries to make it to ISEF. The result is a global character-driven coming-of-age story playing out across a science fair season, from the birth of an idea to a cutting-edge research project ready to compete in the “Olympics of science fairs.”
For Muck Media, Cristina Costantini, Darren Foster, Jeffrey Plunkett and Meri Haitkin are executive producers. For National Geographic, Chris Kugelman is executive producer, Kevin Mohs is vice president of Production, and Alan Eyres is senior vice president of production and development.
