WESTLAKE, Ohio - Three Westlake High School students met President Obama last week at the White House Science Fair.
Theodore Poulos, Jacob Hoffman, and Jacob Lemanowicz were invited to the annual event after taking first place in Ohio's Student Model Home Design Competition. They joined about 100 other students from across the country.
"It was pretty overwhelming," Lamanowicz said.
He said President Obama made some remarks, telling the students that they are an inspiration and important to the country.
Hoffman said it was nice to see students involved in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) getting some recognition.
"It was a little overwhelming being at the White House," Hoffman said.
The three are students in Scott Kutz's technical drawing and design class. They were accompanied on the trip by their principal, Tim Freeman.
