Discovery Communications has partnered with US2020 in order to reach the organization’s goal to match 1 million STEM mentors with students at youth-serving nonprofits by 2020. The partnership was announced in conjunction with the White House Science Fair, which is taking place in Washington D.C. today.
President Obama previously called for organizations to assist in his goal of educating students in STEM subjects, and US2020's mission reflects that goal.
As part of the initiative, Discovery Education hosted a “virtual field trip” to the White House for students on its site, featuring MythBusters’ Kari Byron and White House officials discussing the importance of STEM subjects and careers.
The 30-minute video, called Of the People: Art and History of the White House, has been archived on Discovery Education's site for on demand viewing.
