The National Science Foundation is joining the radio world.

NSF has launched an online radio station dedicated to science, technology, engineering and math. It's called Science 360 Radio.

Cliff Braverman, a multimedia group leader for the agency, joined the Federal Drive with Tom Temin and Amy Morris to discuss why the foundation launched a radio station and how it fits in with President Barack Obama's call for agencies to help spark interest in STEM — science, technology, engineering and math.

NSF launched its Science360.gov in 2009 to be a clearinghouse for science and technology information.
