Happy is the head that wears the crown.
This year's Fair placed a particular emphasis on women in STEM, so it's gratifying to imagine what an inspiring experience attending must have been for members of the Troop, and exciting that Obama (who showed his support of girls in science at a Marine Corps event earlier this month) agreed to pose for the picture--especially since he's refused similar requests in the past.Read More

Creating this badge will get young girls excited in technology and science and let them know that they, too, can have a career in the video game industry. -- Amy Allison, vice president at Women in Games International.
