I'm Joey and I Met President Obama!

Hi I'm Joey - I got to meet President Obama at the White House Science Fair. Meeting him was really fun, and he's really nice. I showed him my Extreme Marshmallow Cannon.

The White House Staff told me not to encourage the President to fire it, but he wanted to fire it! You can't really say no to the President of the United States. I never thought that it would become this big - but if more kids see my cannon - then more will realize they can build or do what ever they put their mind to, big or small. I want lots of kids to see how cool it is to MAKE and go to Maker Faires.

Thanks to 'Make and Cognizant' for giving me this awesome experience! Don't be BORED...MAKE Something!
