As part of Connect a Million Minds (CAMM), the company’s five-year, $100 million commitment to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education, Time Warner Cable has launched Wouldn’t It Be Cool If... This new STEM competition challenges youth to use creativity and imagination to develop ideas that could make a difference in their lives, communities and even the world, and then show how STEM can make them a reality.
Wouldn’t It Be Cool If… is jointly presented by i.am FIRST, founded by artist, entertainer and entrepreneur will.i.am. FIRST is a key partner in this effort, along with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America and Fahrenheit 212, a leading innovation firm. Kids ages of 10-15 can submit their ideas online at www.wouldntitbecoolif.com between February 21 and March 28. Four finalists will have the chance to travel to the FIRST Robotics Championship in St. Louis to pitch their ideas to will.i.am, Dean Kamen and other guest judges. One grand prize winner will develop their idea with Fahrenheit 212.
