In Episode 9 of "Community Champions," the 49ers host students from their STEM Leadership Institute for a free screening of the Sundance award winning film SCIENCE FAIR. Anna Kagarakis got a sneak peek of the critically acclaimed film, found out why it was an audience favorite at the festival, and talked to the DuPont Award-winning and Emmy-nominated documentary filmmaking team Cristina Constantini and Darren Foster. 

Universally loved by critics who called it “infectious and exuberant” (LA Times), "like a Christopher Guest film- but real" (Deadline)  and the “feel-good film of the year” (Washington Post), SCIENCE FAIR takes an illuminating look at students from around the world as they prepare to compete at the International Science and Engineering Fair.  These nine high school students navigate rivalries, obstacles and hormones on their journey to competition. 

Receiving a 98 percent “fresh” rating by Rotten Tomatoes. SCIENCE FAIR premieres this spring on National Geographic Channel.
