Now, to join us in celebrating these innovators, I want to welcome the members of Congress who are here with us.  We also have Interior Secretary Sally Jewell.  We've got my Science Advisor, John Holdren; National Science Foundation Director France Cordova; Deputy Director of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, Michelle Lee, whose work helps to oversee the granting of these awards; and our National Science and Technology Medals Foundation Chair, James Rathmann.

Now, as many of you know, every year I host the White House Science Fair.  These boys and girls are as young as 6 years old.
