In the second public event of the Educate to Innovate campaign on Friday, Jan 8, President Obama honored teachers and MENTORS, and outlined the roles that government, businesses, scientists can play, “in building an education system that is worthy of our children and ready to help us seize the opportunities and meet the challenges of the 21st century.”
In particular, he’s calling on 200,000 federal scientists “to speak at schools, to create hands-on learning opportunities through efforts like National Lab Day, and to help stoke that same curiosity in students which perhaps led them to pursue a career in science in the first place”.
