The forum was organized to promote the teaching of math and science to America's students and was sponsored by Amgen, a leading biotechnology company committed to science education in the U.S.

Building upon recent national initiatives such as President Obama's "Educate to Innovate" campaign and his $4.35 billion "Race to the Top" school competition, Scientific American assembled prominent thinkers and leaders before an audience of more than 100 education advocates from government, industry and academia.
