Hanging out with "We the Geeks"

White House We the Geeks logo

Tomorrow, the White House is kicking off "We the Geeks," a new series of Google+ Hangouts to highlight the future of science, technology, and innovation here in the United States.

We're covering topics like commercial space exploration, STEM education, and turning science fiction to science fact.

The first "We the Geeks" Hangout will focus on Grand Challenges: ambitious goals on a national or global scale that capture the imagination and demand advances in innovation and breakthroughs in science and technology.

So at 2 p.m. ET on May 16th, we'll be celebrating Grand Challenges with folks from across the country -- including people who worked on IBM's cognitive system Watson, and Google's self-driving car.
