Adorable Girl Scouts Ask Obama ‘What Have You Come Up With?’ And Then They Hug It Out
A team of Girl Scout Daisies showed some super flower power at the White House on Monday.
“The Supergirls,” aka Troop 411 — a team of five 6-year-olds from Tulsa, Oklahoma, represented Girl Scouts of America at the 2015 White House Science Fair with a page-turning robot. Wearing superhero red capes over their blue, badged uniforms, the team proudly presented their invention to President Obama himself. “It’s a prototype,” one of the (yes, 6-year-old) girls told him.

After walking him through their invention, the girls explain to the president that they came up with their idea through a “brainstorm session,” and one of the Girl Scouts asks Obama if he’s ever had one himself.
“I have had a couple brainstorming sessions, but I didn’t come up with anything this good!” the president told the troop. “So you guys are already better brainstormers than I am.”
Before Obama can finish his thought, another one of the other girls chimes in and asks him, “What did you come up with?”
“I came up with things like, you know, health care. It turned out OK, but it started out with some prototypes,” the president told the girls. He then tells them they did a good job and they all go in for a big group hug — just a regular old Monday for the “Supergirls” of Troop 411.
