President Obama will wrap up his week by heading to a Northern Virginia high school to sign the American Invents Act. The bill, which was passed last Thursday night, is the first significant change in patent law since 1952. According to our friends at CNN Money:
The president will travel to Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Alexandria, Virginia – a magnet school ranked the #1 “Gold Medal School” in the nation by US News and World Report. It draws its 1800-member student body from Fairfax County and other counties in Northern Virginia, and the school specializes in…well…science and technology. While there President Obama will visit a classroom and see science and technology students’ projects. He’ll then make remarks at 11:10 AM.
There is no on-camera press briefing today.
Here’s the full schedule:
