White House Science Fair 2014


President Barack Obama has been a champion of bolstering the educational standards of young students, especially in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). On Tuesday, the President hosted the 2014 White House Science Fair, with an emphasis on recognizing the winners of various STEM competitions across the nation. There was also an announcement of a new education imitative from President Obama as well.

Today’s fair featured over 100 students from more than 30 states, which make up a pool of over 40 STEM competitions and organizations that have aimed their attentions on the excellence of students in the fast-growing fields. Around 30 student teams will have direct access to the President in presenting their work as well, ranging from new inventions to common research.

“When students excel in math and science, they’re laying the groundwork for helping America compete for the jobs and industries of the future,” said President Obama. “That’s why I’m proud to celebrate outstanding students at the White House Science Fair and to announce new steps my Administration and its partners are taking to help more young people succeed in these critical subjects.”

President Obama took time to detail the new plans for the Educate To Innovate program.

The program’s features will include a $35 million Department of Education competition that is geared to help train 100,000 STEM teachers. It will also expand STEM AmeriCorps, which will aid 18,000 low-income students for the summer. Additionally, a nationwide STEM mentoring effort in seven cities will involve major tech, media, and non-profit organizations to serve as a pipeline for STEM students.
