Blunt Talks Math and Science with Teachers
He focused on math and science at the Columbia Career Center, where Blunt saw how students use real-world situations.
Students in an advanced animal science class showed the governor what they're learning and how they can use it in the future. Later, Blunt discussed with teachers how Missouri can improve students' math and science performance.
"We have to have young Missourians entering those fields and want to do important research," Blunt explained, "and want to provide absolutely essential services."
The governor will hold a math and science summit April 25 in Jefferson City to discuss how to better prepare students for technology careers. KOMU News at Five will have more on Blunt's visit.
