MILWAUKEE, WI (November 5, 2015) – Time Warner Cable announced today the 7th annual Time Warner Cable STEMfest, where more than 7,000 children and adults from around southeast Wisconsin will participate in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) activities at Discovery World.
The event, taking place Saturday, Nov. 7 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Discovery World, located at 500 N. Harbor Drive, in Milwaukee, will be free and open to the public.
“Time Warner Cable is excited to get students interested in and excited about STEM by offering this all-day free event at Discovery World,” said Jack Herbert, Regional Vice President of Midwest Operations, at Time Warner Cable. “We are proud to provide many hands-on science activities and experiments to inspire young people to get more involved in STEM fields.”
On Friday, Nov. 6, the Girl Scouts will participate in special STEM lab activities. On Saturday, Nov. 7, the public can join in the festivities and enjoy hands-on science activities/experiments led by more than 15 local STEM nonprofits and educators.
During the festival, TWC will promote its Connect a Million Minds (CAMM) initiative to inspire young people to pursue education and careers in the areas of STEM. STEMfest began in Milwaukee in November 2009 with the launch of TWC’s CAMM initiative.
TWC will also promote its Go Green initiative, which focuses efforts on reducing its carbon intensity, by offering visitors an interactive, life-sized game board that will teach them in fun ways how simple, everyday choices can help the environment.
“Events like this challenge students and shows them that STEM is more than just what they learn in the classroom,” added Joel Brennan, President and CEO of Discovery World. “It’s also about solving real-world problems, allowing kids to discover science and technology in a whole new way.”
