Time Warner Cable supports STEM programs for LA Youth
At this year’s “Blast Off to Science Fair”, All-Stars showcased STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) projects they’ve been working on throughout the school year, made possible by a generous grant from Time Warner Cable to support ASAS Los Angeles’ “Beyond Science” initiative. Winning projects tackled the challenge of using solar energy to power air conditioning, creating affordable prosthetics, and examined the spoilage rate of organic and non-organic food.
Thanks to Time Warner Cable, more than 600 students from 30 schools participated in STEM experimentation, field trips, and hands-on learning this year. These experiences can be life changing. Research indicates that minorities are disproportionately underrepresented in STEM fields: women of color comprise fewer than 1 in 10 employed scientists and engineers. Thank you Time Warner Cable for helping us expose more All-Stars to STEM education and career tracks!
