President Obama Visits TJHSST!

Today was fairly interesting.

President Obama (yes, the President) visited our school (Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology) to sign the “America Invents Act,” which essentially trades the old “whoever invents first gets the patent” system to the new “whoever files first gets the patent” system, which would streamline the process.

Anyway, it was really quite a neat experience being that close to the president. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to shake his hand, but I did get fairly close. You can watch the whole event here:

C-SPAN or White House
