White House Science Fair 2015

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XrNVlyjyam4[/youtube]
Last year, President Obama fielded basketballs lobbed from a hand-built catapult, test drove a search-and-rescue robot, and activated an auto-retracting bridge made of LEGOs during his tour of the 2014 White House Science Fair.

On March 23, 2015 the White House again will host 100 young scientists and engineers from around the country in a day-long showcase of their cool projects, inventions, and potentially life-saving discoveries. Can’t make it to Washington, DC? No problem – you can watch live at https://www.whitehouse.gov/science-fair  and wh.gov/sciencefair.

Past participants included an engineer who built and raced an electric car in a national competition, a group of girl coders who built an app to help their visually impaired classmate, and multiple teens with patents pending.
