Obama Declares “National Day Of Making” At White House Invention Event

 The AP (6/19, Anderson) reports President Obama appeared at the first-ever White House Maker Faire Wednesday, “promoting the use of new tools and techniques to start up new businesses, to boost manufacturing and to strengthen science and math education.” The President said, “We’ve got to make sure that more Americans have the skills and opportunities to land a job in a growing industry or to create entire new industries. That’s why I’m declaring today a national day of making.” Among the “quirky and clever creations” on display was a 17-foot electric giraffe.
