An evening of programming for 760 Girl Scouts, complete with special classes and a sleep-over, kicked off the event. The public joined the fun Saturday morning, enjoying TWC-sponsored free admission, special shows with science educators, FIRST Robotics and LEGO League exhibitions and hands-on science experiments led by more than 20 local STEM nonprofits and educators. The children actively participated in discovery learning activities with each of the STEM partners. Time Warner Cable’s STEMfest was launched in Milwaukee in November 2009 with the launch of the company’s Connect a Million Minds (CAMM) initiative to inspire young people to pursue education and careers in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
