White House Marks TWC's STEM Milestone
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The White House today announced that Time Warner Cable (TWC), through its Connect a Million Minds (CAMM) initiative, has reached its goal of connecting one million young people to hands-on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) learning opportunities and resources. Pledges to connect a million minds to STEM were collected through the CAMM website, where parents, educators, and mentors also recorded stories of how they introduced students to STEM activities. The milestone comes less than five years after President Obama and TWC announced this commitment in response to the White House’s “Educate to Innovate” campaign, which is designed to move American students from the middle to the top of the pack in science and math achievement over the next decade.
The announcement was made at today’s White House Science Fair, which was attended by TWC Chairman and CEO Rob Marcus.
Marcus said, “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. 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.”
