Time Warner Cable teamed up with actress Emma Dumont (most known for her role on ABC Family’s Bunheads) as well as Kansas City Ballet to promote STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics) education. Time Warner Cable hosted their 1st annual STEM Expo at Science City at Union Station on September 20 for 4th-12th grade girls. Emma Dumont and Kansas City Ballet’s Second Company (KCB II) demonstrated how dance is not just an art, but also a science. This event is part of Time Warner Cable’s ‘Connect a Million Minds‘ initiative which strives to educate and inspire the next generation of problem solvers through hands-on learning experiences.
Check out the video below to learn more about this collaboration and hear from KCB II Manager Anthony Krutzkamp:
