Obama Hosts Science Fair at the White House

Barack_ObamaAs part of President Obama’s campaign to promote science, technology, engineering and math education, or STEM curriculum, the White House is hosting a science fair to honor top student projects from around the nation. Projects featured at the White House science fair include a toilet that conserves water, a model solar-powered car, a water purifier for rural communities and a device that uses light to help kill cancer cells.

“If you win the NCAA championship, you come to the White House. Well, if you’re a young person and you produce the best experiment or design, the best hardware or software, you ought to be recognized for that achievement, too,” the President said in November.

Earlier this fall, Obama launched Change the Equation, a program that is bringing together industry leaders to help build better STEM programs in struggling school districts.

The President also announced that he will make a personal appearance on December 8, 2010 episode of MythBusters. The show’s hosts, Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage were guests at today’s science fair.
