Calling all science lovers! The Truro Public Library is thrilled to host a screening—at the Nauset Regional High School auditorium—of the National Geographic Documentary Films’ Science Fair, on Friday, December 14 at 4:15 p.m.  We welcome students, teachers, scientists, science (fair) lovers—and anyone who loves a little competition. Hailed by critics as “immensely likeable,” “brilliant and quirky” and an “ode to the teenage science geeks on whom our future depends,” and winner of the audience award at Sundance and SXSW, National Geographic Documentary Films’ SCIENCE FAIR follows nine high school students from around the globe as they navigate rivalries, setbacks and, of course, hormones, 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. The film, from Fusion and Muck Media and directed by the duPont Award-winning and Emmy-nominated documentary filmmaking team of Cristina Costantini and Darren Foster, 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. This event is free and open to the public. An informal Q&A will follow the 90-minute film, and snacks will be served prior to the screening. Please call the Truro Public Library at 508-487-1125 with any questions. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
