WHSF: Monday

So I was invited to the White House and today I actually went to the White House. It was pretty cool! I went to the White House Science Fair.

I’m happy to say that FIRST was WELL represented there! I got to meet the Atomic Flying Pickles FLL Team from New Mexico, Team LANDROIDS FTC Team #4220 from New Jersey, a member of Bomb Squad FRC Team #16¬†from Arkansas, and Falcon Robotics FRC Team #842¬†from Arizona! FIRST also had a board director there! It was a blast to meet them all! I was able to represent 4-H, Geospatial Mapping, and Team Neutrino FRC Team #3928.

It was cool to see all these amazing Science, Technology, Engineering, Art/Agriculture, and Mathematics (STEAM) projects and to be able to hear and see the president speak about growing STEAM. Click here to watch a video of all the projects at the fair.

WHSF: Sunday

Hey guys! I was invited last week to participate in the White House Science Fair. I plan on blogging about my experience here. Shout out to the National 4-H Council, esri, and the Story County 4-H Program for helping me get here!

This morning I flew into DC. Below are some photos from the travels. (coming soon)

When I got here, I “lost my way”. I could swear I was going to Silver Spring, when actually I was suppose to go to Branch Ave. I got to see a lot of DC along my looong journey. To make matters worse, is the fact that they were doing MAJOR track work, so I had to wait ~20 minutes at the airport for the first Metro.

Once I got to my hotel, I went back into DC to run into the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum. They have a new exhibit on GPS named Time and Navigation.

After that, I rode a bike around…

and stopped at the fish market…

and had some of the most amazing supper…
