President Obama Hosts the White House Science Fair

At the White House on October 18th, President  Barrack Obama hosted the White House Science Fair, celebrating the winners of science, technology, engineering, and math competitions.

 The White House Science Fair fulfills the president's commitment that he made at the beginning of his Educate to Innovate campaign.

At the White House Science Fair, Mr. Obama viewed all of the winning projects that the champions had created. From basic research breakthrough projects to new inventions, president Obama gave remarks congratulating the students on their projects, and their hard work to brainstorm and create the genius inventions that they were showing Mr. Obama.

The president also announced his upcoming appearance on the December 8th, 2010, episode of Discovery Channel's Mythbusters, for those of you who do not know what the show "MythBusters" is... it is a popular television show that uses science to figure out if the myths that people tell are true or just plain made up.

President Obama's speech to the students who have won past and present science fairs, and he encouraged for students to try and win future science fairs, and to keep pursuing in the kind of science or math that you have put your heart into.

The next video shows Mr. Obama walking through the Science Fair, held in the West Wing. The fair includes a soccer-playing robot and specially geared-up cars (or contraptions that might someday be made into a car.
