Watch Girl Scouts Steal Obama's Heart at the White House Science Fair


It’s the most adorable time of the year: the White House Science Fair, when the nation gets to watch President Obama interact with charming, science-minded children.

NBC News reports that a group of cape-clad Girl Scouts from Tulsa, Oklahoma stood out this year, with their page-turning robot made of Legos. Obama very much enjoyed hearing six-year-olds talk tech: “This is a quote. They said, ‘It’s just a prototype,'” he told reporters afterward. Watch this presidential group hug and die of cute overload:

But of course there were hordes more precocious, talented kids at the fair. You can see all the photos here; apparently there was a hiccup-curing lollipop on display, too. But the president noticed the robots made a strong showing in particular: “The robots I see keep getting smarter every year,” he said. “We are keeping an eye on that, by the way. You’re on notice, Skynet.”

Is Obama available for babysitting after 2016?
