Fifth Grader Develops Video Game, Wins White House Visit

11-year-old Hannah J. Wyman designed a video game that raises awareness about pollution. “Toxic” scored the Massachusetts grade schooler the opportunity to participate in the 2012 White House Science Fair of which only 100 people were invited.

Hannah was the youngest partipant in the fair this year and won $5,000 dollars for St. Anna Catholic School. (Thanks to her, the school was able to purchase 10 new iPads.) On meeting President Obama, she said she recalled “how tall he was. I had to look up when I was talking to him … He was surprised I was only in fifth grade and made the game.”
