Connect A Million Minds program teaches Metzger Middle School students about wireless technologies

As part of its Connect A Million Minds campaign, Time Warner Cable invited students from Jusdon ISD's Henry Metzger Middle School to learn more about the importance of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) in their everyday applications.

"It's important that (the students) be exposed at this age, and we wish to expand it to our elementary schools" said Judson ISD Superintendent William Mackey.

About a dozen Time Warner Cable employees volunteered for the event, where they explained how everyday devices such as mobile phones, computers, and iPads rely on a vast network of relay towers and technicians. Keeping it all working, they said, requires the whole of studies in the science, technology, engineering and math.
