White House Science Fair 2010. President Obama hosted a White House science fair, and twelve great and fantastic young minds from across the nation were invited to attend. They qualified by winning various STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) science fairs across the nation.
As the Wall street Journal puts it, “Just like the old days, most exhibits were presented on posterboards. And just like the old days, there’s always one kid whose project is so over-the-top brilliant that the rest want to drop-kick her.”
That person was Amy Chyao. She created a method for medicine to penetrate deeper, and in order to create the technology she had to “teach herself” chemistry.
The President was in good humor as he joked about having a robot kick a soccer ball at reporters, and mentioned how he likes to drive with his knees while eating a hamburger.
The White House Science Fair 2010 shows us one of our President’s strong points. He’s got a good sense of humor, and he cares deeply about the nation’s youth. Now that the science fair is over, he’s going to hit the campaign trail.
