President Obama is hosting his final White House Science Fair today, April 13, 2016. Roughly 40 student teams from around the country will be sharing their research, inventions and award-winning robots and rockets. These young people are truly impressive. Read up on them here. You can tune in to watch the Science Fair live from 1:00 – 3:00 PM ET.
The White House Science Fair is a great new tradition. It’s one that I wish I could say I know will continue with the next administration. Let’s hope our country continues to highlight young people who inspired innovation and excellence in all of us.
Next up: June 17-23, 2016 is the National Week of Making. The National Maker Fair will be held on June 18-19. Do you have something cool brewing, know a Maker worthy of national recognition, have a Maker commitment to share, or a fantastic idea to support smarter cities (or maybe a blogger who you’d like to cover the Fair)? Share it here.
