joining forces in colorado

First lady Michelle Obama and Dr Jill Biden at Fountain-Ft. Carson High School, April, 14, speaking about the need for advanced placement courses in math and science at schools serving military children

Denver Post: Michelle Obama says she knows that the lives of Colorado students with parents in the military aren’t easy.

But the first lady told hundreds of teens at Fountain-Fort Carson High School, “If you can get through this, you can get through anything.”

Obama visited the school near Fort Carson school along with Jill Biden, wife of Vice President Joe Biden, and “MythBusters” stars Jamie Hyneman and Grant Imahara.

They were there to promote the “Joining Forces” campaign to support the families of military personnel and a campaign by the National Math and Science Initiative to promote advanced-placement classes, especially for students from military families.

A panel of students competed with a panel of parents in a math and science contest, with the first lady and Biden reading the questions.

mythbusters!

President Obama makes a cable television appearance tonight, delegating a special science project to the hosts of The Discovery Channel’s MythBusters.

The assignment: Could ancient Greek mathematician Archimedes really have set an invading Roman ship on fire by reflecting the sun’s rays off of mirrors?

“Figure this out and report back to me,” the President tells the hosts.

The broadcast is 9 p.m. tonight, eastern time.
