White House

Eight Photos of Obama Looking Fascinated by Kids' Science Projects

Being president often means looking thoughtful while standing next to new technology.

Remember that photo of a surprised President Obama watching a cannon blast a marshmallow across the room, as the 14-year-old who invented the contraption looks on?

Well, it's that time of year again. The president made his rounds on Tuesday at the fourth annual White House Science Fair, meeting with kid geniuses and checking out their projects and experiments. And that meant showing a lot of interest. Here are several photos from the day.
