A nine-year-old took his enthusiasm for 3-D printing all the way to the White House, where he met President Barack Obama last week. Jacob Leggette of Baltimore, Md., who creates toys using a 3-D printer, watches as Obama blows a soap bubble using a bubble wand that Leggette 3-D printed. The event, started by the Obama Administration in 2010, marks the President’s sixth and final White House Science Fair.
