Science at the White House

After viewing a clip of an interview with President Obama about education in the White House, class members are put into collaborative groups to do research on a specialized branch of science. Topics include nanotechnology, space exploration, biotechnology, extreme weather, alternative energy sources, marine biology, and ancient Earth. They write a persuasive letter to the president about why their assigned topic should be chosen to be taught in the White House.
