Announcing the 2016 White House Science Fair
MARCH 30, 2016 AT 9:36 AM ET BY FAE JENCKS
Summary: Six years ago, President Obama made history by hosting the first-ever White House Science Fair. We’re excited to host the 6th and final one of his Administration!
Over the past five years, the President has invited students to bring their robots, rockets, solar-powered cars, and many other discoveries to the White House, where he has honored these outstanding students the same way we honor the winners of the Super Bowl.
Today, we are announcing that we will host the sixth and final White House Science Fair of President Obama’s Administration on April 13, 2016.
Student’s attending this year’s Science Fair are tackling some of our Nation’s greatest challenges, from combating climate change to uncovering new ways to fight cancer to discovering ways to reach farther beyond our atmosphere as part of the Mars generation. We look forward to celebrating their ingenuity and entrepreneurship — not just in this moment, but as we look toward a future where they’ll be the scientists, engineers, mathematicians, and innovators who stand to change the world.
But we know that the incredible talent of America’s young girls and boys is not limited to those students who join us at the White House. That’s why this year, we want to hear from students and teachers about the science fair projects you are doing in K-12 classrooms across the country.
