Sixteen-year-old Joey Hudy (who helped President Obama launch marshmallows at the 2012 White House Science Fair) was invited to sit in First Lady Michelle Obama's box at the 2014 State of the Union address. In this guest post, the 'Maker' and Intel intern writes about his experience at the event and how STEM education makes a difference.

It was amazing and a great privilege. I had the best time and would love to go again! I didn't know really what to expect of it, but it exceeded all my expectations. President Obama is a wonderful speaker.
STEM got me to the White House by being a MAKER. I feel I can be a good influence for other kids to know they can Make stuff too.
My inspiration is seeing other people using my creations, that makes me want to make more. I have a few products on the market that help kids learn to make.
[What was it like for President Obama to fire his marshmallow shooter?]
I don't know how President Obama felt, but he seemed very excited and looked like he was having fun.
I would like to continue working for Intel. and continuing encouraging kids to Make and to follow their dreams.
