Time Warner Cable (TWC) recently awarded a $3,500 STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Summer Challenge Grant to the summer program at I.S. 218, a Children’s Aid community school. TWC also invited a lucky group of students from the school to a 10-year anniversary celebration at the studios of NY1 Noticias, a subsidiary of TWC and the city’s only local, 24-hour all-news channel in Spanish. Youth had the chance to tour the studio, engage in exciting activities and enjoy treats.

Time Warner generously opened up this grant opportunity to middle schools who presented innovative and ambitious proposals for expanding and strengthening STEM programming for youth. A huge thank-you goes out to Time Warner Cable and NY1 Noticias for supporting quality youth programming and opening their doors to children from our community schools.

Time Warner Cable’s (TWC) Connect a Million Minds (CAMM) is a five-year, $100 million cash and in-kind philanthropic initiative to address America’s declining proficiency in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), which puts our children at risk of not competing successfully in a global economy.
