Time Warner Cable and Imagination Foundation are partnering up for the 2016 Earth Day Cardboard Challenge, the companies announced Tuesday, as part of TWC’s “Go Green” and Connect a Million Minds (CAMM) initiatives. Kids of all ages are encouraged create imaginative and sustainable solutions made out of cardboard and other recycled materials.
“Since the launch of CAMM in 2009, we have looked for new ways to help young people think creatively about how STEM can solve some of our greatest societal challenges,” said Tessie Topol, TWC’s Vice President of Corporate Social Responsibility in a statement. “We are proud to partner with the Imagination Foundation on the first-ever Earth Day Cardboard Challenge—a fun, hands-on way for students everywhere to engage with STEM concepts, while becoming more environmentally conscious.”
Throughout the month of April until Earth Day on April 22, children will be creating solutions to environmental issues. TWC is hosting events throughout the country, and participants from the following groups, will be present: Girls Inc. of the Greater Capital Region in Albany, EcoRise and Cedars International Academy in Austin, Boys & Girls Clubs of Buffalo, Imagination Foundation Chapter, Extera Public School in Los Angeles, and Free Arts in New York City. On Earth Day, communities across the country will celebrate the creations.
