Educate to Innovate

The White House has taken interest in promoting math education. President Obama's "Educate to Innovate" campaign aims to help students become more involved in the sciences and math. The President's initiative "hopes to do a series of events, announcements and other activities that build upon the President’s 'call to action' and address the key components of national priority."

This website describes the importance of mathematics and many rewarding career opportunities available to students who study mathematics.
