White House Science Fairs

The recognition that BioGENEius Challenge participants receive goes well beyond just our organization. U.S. President Barack Obama has invited winners of the National and International BioGENEius Challenges to the White House Science Fair and some have had the distinct honor of presenting their research as well. The event is a celebration of their talent and incredible efforts, and President Obama views every student’s project and hears presentations from all participants. In the past, he has delivered comments and congratulating remarks on projects that ranged from a soccer-playing robot, to a smart toilet that conserves water, to an innovative approach to treating cancer!
