FOR KIDS: Science at the White House

Students with big achievements in science, engineering met with the president February 7

This week, the president of the United States invited some big winners to the White House. And no, they don’t play football.  

February 7 marked the second ever White House Science Fair. About 100 middle school, high school and college students from across the country got a special invitation to spend the morning meeting with the president and his top scientists. Ten students who had competed in national academic challenges sponsored by Society for Science & the Public — or SSP, publisher of Science News for Kids — were among those honored. Some students even presented their projects to President Barack Obama himself.
