President Barack Obama enjoyed blowing bubbles with Digital Harbor Foundation student Jacob Leggette at last month’s White House Science Fair.
The 9-year-old from Sandtown also had an action item for Obama: bring on a child science advisor.
Since the White House has been known to bring on advisors from DHF, they didn’t shy away. And now, instead of just one advisor, Obama is looking for a full committee.
The White House put out a call for kid scientists and innovators to help on STEM matters, and provide ideas.
“Kids know first-hand what’s working inside and outside of their classrooms and how to better engage students in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) fields,” the White House announcement says.
