During a Google+ 'Fireside Hangout' on Thursday, President Barack Obama talked about his daughters' math and science studies, the benefits of making computer programming a required high school class and the need to keep the Internet open.

He also said he's focused on protecting people's online privacy, as well as the Internet itself.

"The technology is changing so fast," he added. "We want to protect privacy. We want to protect people's civil liberties."

Also, he said, "We want to make sure the Internet stays open. I'm an ardent believer that what's powerful about the Internet is its openness and its capacity for people to get out there and introduce a new idea with low barriers to entry. We also want to make sure that people's ideas are protected."
