Earth Day is this Friday, April 22, and I’m happy to share that through a new partnership with the Imagination Foundation, Time Warner Cable (TWC) is introducing the 2016 Earth Day Cardboard Challenge. This Challenge provides an opportunity for children of all ages and the adults who support them to create novel, imaginative and sustainable solutions out of cardboard and other recycled materials.
At Time Warner Cable, we were thrilled to learn of the Mayor of Charlotte’s Jennifer Roberts focus on out of school time programs for youth aged 12 -18, and we just knew that our company had to be involved.
Next month, Time Warner Cable will open its 20th Learning Lab at the Chinese-American Planning Council in Flushing, Queens. Our Learning Lab initiative provides underserved New York City residents with access to free WiFi and state of the art computers, through partnering with local nonprofits.

Time Warner Cable's Connect a Million Minds Program Continues to Inspire STEM Education in Creative Ways
Multimedia with summary
When our Connect a Million Minds STEM education initiative launched in 2009, Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) learning was very focused on activities like robotics and bridge building. However, over the years at Time Warner Cable, we have found ways to make STEM exciting to all students by showing them how STEM is used in all of their favorite activities like sports, dance and cooking.
