"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 (at the White House Science Fair)
What a fantastic statement from the President… and I share this belief wholeheartedly. The best science and technology students are going to be the drivers of change and improvement for our country and the world – and we need to honor them at all levels.
I was going to come up with a glowing summary of everything that happened at the White House Science Fair on Monday… but Wilson To (2010 Imagine Cup winner) actually had a first hand experience and did a better job than I could ever hope to do.

Congratulations to Wilson and Christian on this amazing honor – and to teams Mobilife and Beastware on this tremendous recognition!
