President Obama was in Center City this week for a fundraising event at the Franklin Institute, which he preceded by visiting six-year-old, project-based STEM focused high school Science Leadership Academy:

Before he hobnobbed with campaign donors at the Franklin Institute, the president spoke to the newly minted graduates of SLA, a city public school that operates in partnership with the science museum. Obama said that the students’ talents would mean a bright future for the United States. “My expectation is that somebody in this auditorium is going to figure out new sources of energy that help not only make us more energy independent but also deals with the problems like climate change,” the president said. “There is somebody in this room who is going to make sure that we are defeating diseases like Alzheimer’s or find a cure for cancer.”
