Connect a Million Minds
The Connect a Million Minds initiative was launched by Time Warner Cable in conjunction with White House plans to strengthen America’s economic competitiveness by improving education and interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
Anchoring the initiative is a unique website, www.connectamillionminds.com, using zip-code search to connect students to STEM learning opportunities in their communities. The website also challenges parents, after-school program administrators and community members to pledge to connect children in their lives with the wonders of science and math. On the website, participants can watch video case studies of inventors and technologists talking about their projects, and post photos and narratives about their STEM experiences, creating a community of people who share a common interest and passion for scientific pursuits.
