NFTE North Texas Students Participate in White House Science Fair

May 29, 2014  |  12 comments

On Tuesday, May 27, President Barack Obama hosted the 2014 White House Science Fair and celebrated the student winners of a broad range of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) competitions from across the country. The President hosted the first-ever White House Science Fair in late 2010, fulfilling a commitment he made at the launch of his Educate to Innovate campaign to inspire students to excel in math and science. As the President noted then, “If you win the NCAA championship, you come to the White House. Well, if you're a young person and you produce the best experiment or design, the best hardware or software, you ought to be recognized for that achievement, too.”

NFTE North Texas students Juan Ramos and Amena Jamali attended the White House Science Fair as result of their award winning business idea – Better Than History. Better Than History is a digitally downloadable game that allows players to select alternate endings to historic events thereby answering the age old question “What if I could change the course of history?”   

Both Juan and Amena attended NFTE entrepreneurship training at MacArthur High School and were finalists and award winners in NFTE business plan competitions both in Texas and nationally.

Congrats Juan Ramos and Amena

Congrats Juan Ramos and Amena Jamali! I am a software engineer and the idea looks great to me as well! I always hated game developers who are developing software to make money instead of giving something knowledge worthy. Even though they are making a huge amount of money still they are not willing to spend a few of this to educate specially teenagers who are going to be our future.
