On March 23, 2015 Victor Cruz received an honorable opportunity to tour the White House Science Fair alongside Bill Nye and serve as a correspondent for the day. Hosted by President Obama, the Fair features innovative projects, designs, and experiments from students all across America. With students from a broad range of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) competitions, this year’s Fair also included a specific focus on girls and women who are excelling in STEM and inspiring the next generation with their work. This year’s Fair – the 5th ever – featured dozens of innovative projects, designs, and experiments from students across America who are excelling in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).
“As a society, we have to celebrate outstanding work by young people in science at least as much as we do Super Bowl winners. Because superstar biologists and engineers and rocket scientists and robot-builders… they’re what’s going to transform our society. They’re the folks who are going to come up with cures for diseases and new sources of energy, and help us build healthier, more successful societies.” –President Obama at the 2014 White House Science Fair
