The 2016 White House Science Fair is an exciting event hosted by President Obama, encouraging creative thinking and collaboration. It’s a chance for the young scientific leaders of tomorrow to showcase their innovative projects and experiments, which tackle some of America’s biggest challenges. From an ocean-energy probe prototype to help developing countries source reliable power, to a self-cleaning robot, new cell-phone security techniques, software that teaches the periodic table to visually impaired students – every single invention is designed to help make this country a safer, healthier, or better place to live.
