President Obama at the Annual White House Science Fair


He visited all the 12 display stations and quizzed the participants about their projects. The President was impressed by a page-turner device projected to allow paralyzed or arthritic patients to read books despite their disabilities. It was invented by some young members of Girl Scouts of the USA. The President had even a prolonged discussion with those little girls. The kindergartners and first graders from Tulsa, Oklahoma, were among 35 young science fair winners who came to the White House Monday to showcase their achieved projects.

This year’s Fair also included a specific focus on girls and women who are excelling in STEM
