White House hosts student webinar on Osama bin Laden’s death

The White House will take to the Web today to talk about Osama bin Laden’s death with students and teachers.

Students and teachers can submit questions to Ben Rhodes, White House deputy national security adviser for strategic communications, after he speaks for 15 minutes to provide context and perspective about the U.S. operation that killed bin Laden.

A spokesperson for Discovery Education, which asked the White House to participate, told Mashable, “We expect a wide range of questions around the background of the 9/11 attacks as well as the events that led up to this past weekend’s events.”

Discovery Education advises that the talk is best suited for middle school and high school students.

Only one ticket is required per classroom, and those who register will be notified when an archive of the discussion is available. The live webinar starts at 1 p.m., Eastern time.
