Time Warner Cable’s EncuentroSTEM Program Receives 2015 BizBash Event Style Award

Time Warner Cable’s EncuentroSTEM program was selected as the 2015 BizBash Event Style Award for Best Sustainability/Corporate Social Responsibility Program for an Event or Meeting.

Time Warner Cable’s EncuentroSTEM program was selected as the 2015 BizBash Event Style Award for Best Sustainability/Corporate Social Responsibility Program for an Event or Meeting. Following TWC’s presentation of EncuentroSTEM, students at the PF Bresee Foundation took a deeper dive into the STEM behind live theater through an after school theater program. Over the course of six weeks, participants further studied elements of costume, lighting, set, and sound design and were then able to put what they learned into practice by writing and presenting their very own plays. The culmination event took place on the same stage of LATC where they watched the EncuentroSTEM program.

Time Warner Cable’s EncuentroSTEM program was selected as the 2015 BizBash Event Style Award for Best Sustainability/Corporate Social Responsibility Program for an Event or Meeting. To help enhance the perception of STEM as “cool” actor Wilmer Valderrama hosted the webcast entitled “EncuentroSTEM.”

Time Warner Cable’s EncuentroSTEM program was selected as the 2015 BizBash Event Style Award for Best Sustainability/Corporate Social Responsibility Program for an Event or Meeting. “EncuentroSTEM,” which attracted a worldwide audience, featured leading professional artists from the Los Angeles Theater Center who each explained their live theater craft —including sound design, lighting, set building, and costume design—as well as all the STEM-enabled career opportunities in this artistic space.

To address an ongoing social need, Time Warner Cable, in partnership with Ovation, chose to focus on a unique approach of educating and inspiring middle school youth from low-income, heavily Latino areas of Los Angeles to pursue education and careers in the arts and its connection to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). 

To help enhance the perception of STEM as “cool” actor Wilmer Valderrama hosted a Webcast entitled “EncuentroSTEM,” which attracted a worldwide audience, featuring leading professional artists from the Los Angeles Theater Center who each explained their live theater craft  —including sound design, lighting, set building, and costume design—as well as all the STEM-enabled career opportunities in this artistic space.
