Secretary Moniz's Remarks at he 2014 National Science Bowl -- As Delivered

Well, this is a great day to be here, I must say, because it’s probably been said many times, but it really is true that this is looking at our future in terms of the science and engineering contributors of the next decades.

But anyway, so thank you, Pat (Dehmer). And also let me thank all the people who really made this happen: the Office of Science staff; I know many volunteers; of course the coaches, for their guidance; and most importantly, of course, the competitors. And so I think you all deserve a great amount of thanks for coming here.
