In 2009, Time Warner Cable launched its Connect a Million Minds (CAMM) project to help get more young people interested in STEM – science, technology, engineering and math.
Late last month the cable company reached that goal to teach young students that skills in these areas would prepare them to be future problem solvers.
The milestone announcement was made at the White House Science Fair.
"All of us at Time Warner Cable are extremely proud of the work we’ve done to inspire our nation’s future problem solvers and cable’s next generation of innovators," said Time Warner Cable chairman and CEO Rob Marcus.
"For the past five years, our Connect a Million Minds initiative has anchored our company in a relevant and important cause that has helped us live up to the commitment we have to our communities and the future we all share."
Jayda Collazo, 12, of the Bronx, N.Y., and Eddie Cuba, 11, of Paterson, N.J., were at the White House event as representatives of the one million young people who have become interested in STEM because of CAMM. Collazo and Cuba are members of The Children Aid’s Society -- Dunlevy Milbank Boys & Girls Club and Boys & Girls Club of Paterson & Passaic. Both Clubs are part of Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA)’s partnership with Time Warner Cable.
"We are very grateful to Time Warner Cable for bringing Jayda and Eddie, two talented Club youth, to the White House Science Fair," said Jim Clark, President and CEO of BGCA. "STEM education is critical to the future success of our young people. With the support of partners like Time Warner Cable, we hope to inspire underrepresented youth in STEM by teaching them how to make technology -- rather than just consume it -- and how to think critically and creatively."
