Commitment to Action

Changing Youth Perceptions of STEM Through Creative Writing

Commitment by

Time Warner Cable Inc.

In 2012, Time Warner Cable and its partners, 826 National and the Coalition for Science Afterschool, committed to launch a pilot of a STEM-based creative writing workshop in Los Angeles, New York City and San Francisco. The program will engage 90 students in science themed creative writing classes which will serve as a springboard to explore STEM subjects for students that otherwise may not ever be exposed to them, potentially increasing the number of students that choose to pursue STEM field studies and increase the number of scientifically literate and engaged Americans.
