President Obama will host the second annual White House Science Fair in Washington tomorrow.
“Fourteen year old Joey Hudy from Phoenix, Arizona is already a Maker Faire veteran,” reads the White House press release.
“He invented an Extreme Marshmallow Cannon and an LED Cube Microcontroller Shield, which he has exhibited at Maker Faires in New York, San Francisco, and Detroit. He received 2 Editors Choice Awards from Maker Faire, and has started a small business selling the microcontroller (Arduino) shield kits on several websites. As the World’s Largest Do-It-Yourself Festival, Maker Faire is the premier event for grassroots American innovation.”
