The White House Science Fair


On Tuesday, May 27, the White House will be filled with robots, science projects, and more for the 2014 White House Science Fair!

Hosted by President Obama, the Fair will feature innovative projects, designs, and experiments from students all across America. With students from a broad range of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) competitions, this year’s Fair will also include a specific focus on girls and women who are excelling in STEM and inspiring the next generation with their work.

We’ll be live streaming this year’s Science Fair right here at WhiteHouse.gov, so make sure to tune in next Tuesday and watch the students showcase their amazing projects at the White House.

“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." – President Obama
