President Obama Visits Intel
President Obama is all about technology and innovation lately. Tonight he’s having closed door conversations in Silicon Valley with Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs and Eric Schmidt (read here).
On Friday, he will travel to Oregon and visit Intel Corporation in Hillsboro, Oregon.
As noted on Intel’s Facebook Fan Page, President Obama will tour the semiconductor manufacturing facility with Intel CEO Paul Otellini. The President will also learn more about Intel’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education programs and Intel’s efforts to better prepare people to compete for high-tech jobs and be the minds behind the next great inventions. He will then make remarks about the importance of out-educating the competition in order to win the future.
In his U.S. State of the Union address and in his Fiscal Year 2012 budget released this week, President Obama outlined a plan for America to out-educate the competition in order to win the future. The President believes that in order to win the future for this generation and the next, we must win the race to educate our kids. His plan calls for key investments in education to grow the economy and win the future.
