Time Warner Cable partnered with Madison Square Garden, the New York Liberty basketball team, Police Athletic League and YWCA GeekGirls to explore STEM in sports in a program called "Connect A Million Minds". Members of the Liberty showed how math and the sciences are applied to sports and all aspects of daily life.
Liberty on-air analyst Rosalyn Gold-Onwude opened the 90-minute session by telling the young ladies that she used math in her work as an announcer. She also said sports was filled with applied math and sciences that included medical care, training, statistics and finances.
New York Hall of Science representatives handled all the science of basketball demonstrations and Liberty star Tina Charles handled the basketball demonstrations and assisted the kids.
Time Warner Cable's Imani Breaker introduced the program and greeted the youngsters.
"We started "Collect A Million Minds" to help young people people like you see how math and science are more than just subjects in school," Breaker said. "They are part of all the things you love in life like basketball. Getting excited about STEM is important to your future."
