President Obama Hosts His Last Science Fair At The White House (VIDEO)

President Barack Obama hosted his last Science Fair at the White House on Wednesday. The first ever White House Science Fair started in 2010 during his first term in office.

The president told the 130-plus students in attendance (via PEOPLE): “You remind us that together through science we can tackle some of the biggest challenges we face. Whether you’re fighting cancer or combating climate change, feeding the world, writing code that leads to social change, you are sharing in this essential spirit of discovery that America is built on.”

I am going to miss Obama so much when his term ends! So many good things have happened to our country since he’s been in office.
