President Obama Speaks at White House Science Fair

On Monday, President Obama welcomed students from all over the U.S. to the first ever White House Science Fair. He mentioned key initiatives that had commenced within the last year, such as Race to the Top and Change the Equation and how those programs are a step in the direction of improving the nation's ranking in the world in the subjects of Math and Science.

As he continued, he encouraged fair attendees and all students to further their education in the STEM subjects. He was sure to point out that the most common education background of CEOs of S&P 500 companies was not business, finance, or economics—it was engineering.

"Anybody with a good idea can prosper. Anybody with talent can succeed." —President Obama
