The Fair is now operated by the non-profit Baltimore Science Fair Foundation and has numerous additional sponsors including the following organizations: Towson University, Towson-Timonium Kiwanis Foundation, Northrop Grumman Corp., PNC Bank, BD Diagnostics, Howard County Public Schools and Baltimore County Public Schools. The Baltimore Section of ASQ is a contributing supporter.

Is your organization on this list? Your organization can also be a Fair sponsor. Contact David Moore for information.

Winners from the Baltimore Science Fair will compete in the International Science & Engineering Fair to be held in Los Angeles CA on May 11-16, 2014.

This is a great way to give back to the local community (and to enjoy being impressed by some exceptionally bright students).
