“This is the fifth White House science fair and every year I walk out smarter than when I came in," President Obama said in his final remarks at the White House Science Fair.
Alumni of the Society for Science & the Public have been honored with invitations to the event every year since its induction. This year, President Obama spent time talking with Intel ISEF 2014 finalist Harry Paul, Intel ISEF 2013 finalist and Intel STS 2015 award winner Anvita Gupta, Intel STS 2015 semifinalist Ruchi Pandya, and Broadcom MASTERS 2014 finalist Nikhil Behari. He told all four students he was proud of them and hoped their research continued to help people in the future. Read more about the 11 SSP alumni who attended this year's event!
