PHOTOS: President Obama Hosts White House Science Fair

Washington, District of Columbia: President Barack Obama hosted the 6th Annual White House Science Fair on Wednesday afternoon in Washington. 

Dozens of students from across the United States, including one from Hillsborough, Somerset County, presented projects that they had worked on for President Obama and the media. The students, who were the finalists in a national competition, ranged in age from nine to 19. 

"So this is an eclectic and diverse bunch", President Obama told attendees in the East Room. "But what they all share is this love of science and love of technology, and a belief that our youngest innovators can change the world," he added.
