BEST. DAY. EVER.

Via: Huffington Post

President Barack Obama may have just had his favorite day as leader of the free world.

At a White House science fair on Tuesday, during which Obama announced a plan to request funding for a new Education Department competition to support math and science teacher preparation programs, Obama perused projects designed by more than 100 students from across the country.

With his science geek on full display, Obama also gleefully partook in a demonstration of the “Extreme Marshmallow Cannon,” blasting pillowy bits of sugar at the drapes of the State Dining Room. It’s safe to say the president was impressed by the contraption, built by 14-year-old Joey Hudy from Phoenix, Ariz.

During his address, Obama also made “a special plea” to the media, encouraging them to dedicate coverage to the issues that were raised at the event.

“Pay attention to this. This is important,” Obama said during remarks in the East Room. “This doesn’t just belong on the back pages of a newspaper. We’ve got to lift this up and emphasize how important this is and recognize these incredible young people. This is what inspires me and gets me up every day.”
