“You think that video game is fun to play? How about inventing one?” This is a quote on Part 3 of Episode 4 of It Ain’t Rocket Science. In this segment, you will see a FIRST Robotics competition and the winner of the first “Wouldn’t It Be Cool If…” contest.
It Ain’t Rocket Science is a project from Time Warner Cable as part of its Connect a Million Minds program, which endeavors to get more young people involved in STEM activities and studies. According to TWC, the series of videos hosted by Adam Balkin, “introduces parents and kids alike to some of the coolest opportunities, events and careers in STEM.”
So far there are 24 episodes, which you can watch on Time Warner Cable or access on the website for the show. The 30-minute episodes are divided into bite-size pieces so you can sample them or show them to a class. This is another great resource for getting students excited about STEM.
