President Obama Launches a Marshmallow Cannon

Watch President Obama try out a young inventor's marshmallow shooter at the White House Science Fair.

Who says science can’t be fun?

At today’s White House Science Fair, President Obama got the chance to shoot a marshmallow across the State Dining Room using 14-year-old inventor Joey Hudy’s “Extreme Marshmallow Cannon.” Hudy designed and built the machine, which can launch the fluffy white confections up to 175 feet away using pressurized air.

Check out the video above to watch the President and Joey put the cannon to the test.
