Just because President Obama is months away from leaving office doesn't mean he's done promoting science education. The American leader is guest hosting Science Channel's Science Presents DNews every day this week (April 11th through 15th) -- yes, the head of the country will be delivering the latest happenings in biology, space and technology while you're settling down for the night. If you want to check it out, you can tune in at 9PM.

Officials aren't shy about the reasons for the appearance. The annual White House Science Fair takes place April 13th, and this is a prime opportunity to drum up interest in science education right when it's likely to get the most publicity. It's easy to be cynical about this (President Obama no doubt wants to go out on a good note), but it could be justified if it gets even a few students interested in studying the world around them.
