Girl Scouts Rock the 2015 White House Science Fair

Girl Scouts are at the 2015 White House Science Fair today. If you didn't get a chance to stream the event, check out what one very important person had to say!





A transcript from President Obama's remarks about "The Supergirls":

“I should give special mention to our Girl Scouts from Oklahoma. Where are those Super Girls?  (Applause.)  They’re standing up, but you can’t really see them -- (laughter) -- because they’re in kindergarten and first grade.  They are today’s youngest scientists at six years old.  They built their device out of Legos.  They realized that some people who might be paralyzed or arthritic might have trouble turning pages on a book so they invented this page turner.  It was awesome.  It was working so well, despite the fact, as they pointed out -- this is a quote, they said, “This is just a prototype.”  (Laughter.)  That’s what they said.  I said, well, how’d you come up with the idea?  They said, well, we had a brainstorming session.  (Laughter.)  And then one of them asked, “Mr. President, have you had brainstorming sessions?”  (Laughter.)  I said, yes, but I didn’t come up with something as cool as this -- (laughter) -- an automatic page turner.  Unbelievable.”

We agree Mr. President!
