ONONDAGA COUNTY, N.Y. -- School might be out for the summer, but teenage girls in Syracuse are learning how to Crack the Code in the digital world.
About 38 campers from the Girls Incorporated Summer Program made a visit to Time Warner Cable for a day of hands-on technology related activities. Four different stations were set up to teach the girls all about the theories behind phone signals, internet connection and cable programming.
Time Warner Cable employees say it's important to get kids involved with technology and science.
"There are roles for everyone in our business, to get them excited about 80 percent of the jobs in the next decade being STEM related. Middle school is when we capture that, which is why Connect a Million Minds focuses on middle school students, girls and boys," said Communications Manager Stephanie Salanger.
Time Warner Cable is the parent company of YNN and we are committed to the Connect a Million Minds program, inspiring youth to develop science, technology, engineering and math skills. For more information on the initiative, go to connectamillionminds.com.
