Students from across the city came to the Intrepid on Thursday to take part in a bundle of science, technology, engineering and math or STEM activities as part of a celebration for Time Warner Cable's Connect a Million Minds initiative.

The celebration brought Time Warner Cable executives and local non-profits together to commemorate the initiative reaching a million mind milestone, connecting one million young people to science, technology, engineering and math.

Students got to share their love for STEM and presented the work they have been doing all summer with their organizations.

Executives say while they have reached one million minds, it's not stopping there.

"No question that this is not the end, it’s another milestone along the way, and we've changed our mantra to connecting a million minds and counting. So it keeps going from here," said Time Warner Cable Chairman and CEO Rob Marcus.

Time Warner Cable is NY1's parent company.
