Future City New MexicoA team of regional finalists from the 2015 Future City Competition has been invited as honored guests at the 2015 White House Science Fair on Monday, March 23. 

Representing New Mexico, the newest of the 39 Future City regions, the team members come from a variety of backgrounds, including a boy from the Santa Clara Pueblo, a girl whose church accommodates the hearing impaired, and the child of recent immigrants from Mexico. Reflecting their community, the kids incorporated four languages into their presentation at the New Mexico Regional Finals in January: Spanish, English, American Sign Language, and Tewa, a Tanoan language spoken by Pueblo Native Americans.

The White House Science Fair invites young scientists and engineers from across the country to the White House to showcase their inventions, robots, and discoveries. Catch a glimpse of the students and hear the President’s remarks during the live webcast on Monday, March 23, at 11:55 a.m. Eastern time.
