Disney has announced the release date for the upcoming National Geographic show, “Science Fair: The Series”, which is inspired by the Sundance Festival favourite and SXSW Audience Award-winning documentary “Science Fair” which was directed by Cristina Costantini and Darren Foster.
“Science Fair: The Series” showcases students working to solve the world’s most complex and pressing issues using science while competing for a coveted spot at the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF), the most competitive science fair on the planet.
The series follows competing students in their relentless pursuit of excellence as they tackle contemporary topics in various areas of science – teen suicide prevention, wound care monitoring systems, high-efficiency alternatives to induction motors, and more.
The series also follows the families and teachers, including “Science Fair” fan-favourite Dr. Serena McCalla, as they support and push their students along the way. It’s an inspiring, character-driven coming-of-age story playing out on a global stage where students push themselves to the limit but never miss an opportunity to uplift one another.
For Muck Media, Cristina Costantini, Darren Foster, Jeffrey Plunkett, and Meri Haitkin are executive producers. For National Geographic, Chris Kugelman is the executive producer, Kevin Mohs is the vice president of Production, and Alan Eyres is the senior vice president of production and development.
The new series will premiere in the United States on December 10th 2023, and will be available the next day on December 11th on Disney+ and Hulu. No international Disney+ release details have been announced, but expect the show to be released at a later date.
While we wait for “Science Fair: The Series”, you can also watch the original documentary film on Disney+ now.
