“I love this event.” That was basically the only statement from President Barack Obama you need to know about as the Chief Executive opened the White House Science Fair this week which featured over 100 students from more than 30 states, representing more than 40 different science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) competitions. This year’s Fair featured inventions from girls and women who are excelling in STEM applications.  Obama also revealed a new $35 million competition to train STEM teachers, an expansion of a program to provide low-income students STEM learning opportunities.
