The 3 girls in Team Rocket Power, who competed in the Team America Rocketry Challenge earlier this month, brought their rocket to the White House Science Fair yesterday. The Science Fair promotes science, technology, engineering, and math (Stem) education programs as part of the Obama Administration’s Educate to Innovate campaign. The Team America Rocketry Challenge attracts 5,000 students every year, 80% of whom major in technical fields.
