The President & The Marshmallow Cannon

Watch the video...
At Tuesday's White House Science Fair, President Obama got the chance to shoot a marshmallow across the State Dining Room, using 14-year-old inventor Joey Hudy’s “Extreme Marshmallow Cannon.”

Hudy, from Phoenix, AZ, designed and built the machine, which uses pressurized air to send the fluffy sugar bombs up to 175 feet away.

The President welcomed kids from across the US to the White House to spotlight innovation and the importance of STEM education.
