From Sunlen Miller:
Hoping to make science and math "cool" again, President Obama today will honor about 80 educators from across the country for awards received for excellence in mathematics and science teaching and mentoring.
The president will deliver remarks in the East Room in the early afternoon.
Today marks the president's second event of the “Educate to Innovate” campaign event for excellence in Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM) education.
The White House says the president will also announce "key new partnerships in his campaign to help reach the Administration’s goal of moving American students from the middle to the top of the pack in science and math achievement over the next decade."
