More than 100 students attended the second White House Science Fair yesterday, showcasing award-winning projects from around the country. In his remarks, President Obama announced several proposals conceived to help reach the goal of preparing 100,000 teachers with math and science skills over the next decade. Among them: $80 million in the president's upcoming budget earmarked for STEM teacher preparation via a competition by the DOE; a $22 million investment from the non-profit and private sector through a coalition called "100Kin10"; a STEM focus in the Race to the Top competition.
