MAINE — Among a room full of some of today's top minds in the fields of science, technology, engineering, math, and even art are four high school students.
They have been invited to this year's Annual Pop! Tech Conference in Maine, for solving some of the world's greatest problems through utilizing STEM skills. The students are participating in a program called Spark, organized with the help of our parent company Time Warner Cable under its Connect a Million Minds initiative.
“...It is not going to be possible to be an effective public citizen in the 21st Century unless you understand science, technology, engineering and mathematics. It doesn't mean you have to be a scientist or technologist or mathematician but you have to have some understanding and so what we're doing is taking the Pop! Tech network of remarkable thinkers and innovators and helping them tell their stories in ways that young people will understand,” said Andrew Zolli, organizer with Pop! Tech.
All of their training involves how to take video, conduct interviews and write for a blog.
