Shaking Hands with President Obama

Transportation YOU programs across the country take many shapes, and have many exciting outcomes! Take San Francisco’s WTS chapter for instance. As part of their Transportation YOU programming, WTS members helped judged a design contest for their local Girls Inc. chapter – and the girls they selected to win the competition for ‘Most Innovative Design’ (Tayo and Eva) were invited to present their transportation project at the White House Science Fair!

This was a life changing experience for the girls to meet the president, and it impressed the importance of science and transportation.  Thank you to all the San Francisco WTS members for serving as judge panelists to make this experience possible for them! The C-SPAN video is below. Our winners can be found at minute 14, side by side, wearing red and white.
