IT-oLogy is proud to be the recipient of a $25,000 grant from Time Warner Cable to fund its popular Cyber Saturday programs in Columbia, SC and Charlotte, NC.
Time Warner Cable will continue to sponsor Cyber Saturday, a program for middle and high school students focused on exploring IT. The program takes place once a month at IT-oLogy Columbia and IT-oLogy Charlotte and introduces middle and high school students to careers in IT through hands-on projects and activities. Through Cyber Saturday, IT-oLogy will be able to reach approximately 6,000 students and parents over a one year period.
“Cyber Saturday at IT-oLogy is a perfect fit for Time Warner Cable’s Connect a Million Minds initiative and a great way to help make fun STEM programs available to so many kids in the area,” said Charlene Keys, area vice president of operations, Time Warner Cable South Carolina. “Connect a Million Minds is all about exposing students to STEM in engaging ways and we believe these programs will accomplish that and much more.”
“Time Warner Cable’s decision to become a partner in IT-oLogy allows us to multiply and magnify our efforts to reach more young students about careers in IT and at the same time further the mission of Time Warner Cable’s initiative Connect a Million Minds,” said Lonnie Emard, President of IT-oLogy. “Cyber Saturday has been a hit and their support enables us to expand the program to more underserved groups.”
The Cyber Saturday program offers students the opportunity to learn more about IT careers while engaging in hands-on activities. For more information about Cyber Saturday in Columbia and Charlotte, please visit the Events page at www.it-ology.org.
