Hello Everyone:

President Obama hosted the “first ever” Science Fair at the White House in 2010.   I was impressed not only by these young inventors ranging from kindergartners thurhigh school; these scientists were mostly young women which I was delighted to see..

Excerpts from:

Remarks by the President at White House Science Fair

“This is our fifth White House Science Fair.  And every year, I walk out smarter than I walked in, because these young people have something to teach all of us — not just about batteries, or attacking cancer cells, or how to build a working robot or a rocket.” 

“But these young scientists and engineers teach us something beyond the specific topics that they’re exploring.  They teach us how to question assumptions; to wonder why something is the way it is, and how we can make it better.  And they remind us that there’s always something more to learn, and to try, and to discover, and to imagine — and that it’s never too early, or too late to create or discover something new.” 

“That’s why we love science.  It’s more than a school subject, or the periodic table, or the properties of waves.  It is an approach to the world, a critical way to understand and explore and engage with the world, and then have the capacity to change that world, and to share this accumulated knowledge.  It’s a mindset that says we that can use reason and logic and honest inquiry to reach new conclusions and solve big problems.  And that’s what we are celebrating here today with these amazing young people.”
