To spark youth interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), Time Warner Cable brought 300 students from local Boys & Girls Clubs to “Connect a Million Minds Day” at Time Warner Cable Studios in Manhattan’s Meatpacking district on Feb. 1.
Professional football player Victor Cruz and Food Network chef and personality Anne Burrell hosted the interactive event, which launched a new national partnership between Time Warner Cable and Boys & Girls Clubs of America to inspire young people to become interested in STEM subjects.
Brought to life by the New York Hall of Science in conjunction with numerous network partners, Connect a Million Minds Day attendees participated in fun, hands-on learning activities that demonstrated the STEM behind popular TV shows and networks, and how these subjects power the activities young people are most passionate about, such as sports, music and cooking.
Both Cruz and Burrell have partnered with Time Warner Cable on Connect a Million Minds – Time Warner Cable’s five-year, $100 million cash and in-kind commitment to inspire the next generation of problem solvers, appearing in original Public Service Announcements and at events to promote the importance of STEM to young people and their families.
