On Thursday evening, November 29, the award-winning documentary Science Fair was presented in the Putnam Family Arts Center's Class of 1945 Hall. St. Mark's was selected by National Geographic Films to host this exclusive screening as part of a nationwide tour.
Science Fair won the Audience Favorite awards at the Sundance, Calgary, Portland, and SFXW film festivals. It has been described by critics as "infectious and exuberant" and "something special" (L.A. Times) and "so funny and so moving, it almost seems too good to be true" (USA Today).
An audience of close to 100—students, faculty, and outside guests—attended the showing at St. Mark's. "Science Fair does a great job of showing the incredible things that young adults are capable of," said SM science teacher Brady Loomer. "Despite a lack of experience that comes with age, they're taking on issues that have the power to change the world."
