Educate to Innovate

President Obama has recently launched an “Educate to Innovate” campaign to encourage participation and increase performance of students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

In support of this initiative, Discovery has launched a new, commercial-free science education programming block Monday-Friday (4:00 to 5:00 PM ET/PT) and Saturdays (7:00-9:00 AM ET/PT) on the Science Channel.

Check this out!

Something  else we’re really excited about is that in place of commercial advertising, Science Channel is running PSAs highlighting notable “cool jobs” in the STEM fields. One of the first PSAs to air features Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski.
