The Inventioneers Meet With President Obama!

In an amazing turn of events, the Inventioneers were invited to the first White House Science Fair on Monday, October 18. We weren't sure what to expect but it was a fun adventure. The White House invited the top award winners from international and national science competitions and some were invited to have exhibits. Three FIRST teams were invited and we all did our best to make FIRST proud! We brought our STOW-or-GO table, our robot, our Don't DUIT materials and most importantly, our SMARTwheel! We never dreamed the President of the United States would try out our invention! He spent about 10 minutes with us asking us all about our FIRST LEGO League experiences and how we got our ideas. We joked back and forth and he encouraged us to bring our ideas to the marketplace. Check out some of our press coverage:
