Best of Fest Screening! Milwaukee native Cristina Costantini's Sundance Festival Favorite award-winning look at the agony and ecstasy of the brilliant young minds who converge on L.A. with dreams of truly life-changing success, is crowd-pleasing in the very best sense of the word, a Spellbound for the STEM set. Each year, over 1,700 students from 75 countries make their way to the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF), all competing to see who will win the genuinely life-changing top prize. Far from the homemade volcanoes and 2-liter tornadoes of your youth, the innovative work being created by the nine students we follow here have the potential to change the world. You'll fall in love with each and every one of these remarkable young minds. It all leads to a gripping conclusion as there can only be one student deemed the science fairest of them all.
