…be makers of things, not just consumers of things

Today the President of the United States of America said

“…think about new and creative ways to engage young people in science and engineering, like science festivals, robotics competitions, and fairs that encourage young people to create, build, and invent — to be makers of things, not just consumers of things.”

  1. YAY! Finally, a [semi-]competent president!

  2. Everytime he talks about science or engineering it just gives me a warm feeling inside. ‘The president gets it. The president cares!’

  3. Finally, we have a president that understands wealth is created by science and engineering not by lawyers and MBA’s.

  4. Wait, that’s the eagle from the Colbert Report intro! :-)
