Bright Ideas STEM from Today's Youth!

New Bright House Networks Program Will Challenge Youth to Pitch Innovative Ideas

ORLANDO, Fla., Aug. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Do you have what it takes to create the next big idea?  Is your creative genius aspiring to unfold? Bright House Networks is proud to present Bright Ideas STEM from Today's Youth, a multi-state competition where high school students dream up the coolest inventions to make their own life, community or even the world, more awesome… and show how STEM – that's science, technology, engineering and math, can bring their idea to life. The new Bright Ideas STEM from Today's Youth program will award one student (or team of students) the opportunity to work with a lead innovation firm – which means this student's dream or idea could potentially be realized and fulfilled!

Bright Ideas STEM from Today's Youth is open to all high school students who are at least 14 years old as of the date of entry and who attend a public, private or parochial high school within a Bright House Networks service area. Students will be able to compete as individuals or as part of a team. Teams who enter will be required to assign an ownership stake (from 1 to 100%) to each team member for the entry submitted.  

"Bright House Networks is thrilled to introduce the new Bright Ideas STEM from Today's Youth program," said Kimberly Maki, corporate vice president, corporate communications and public relations, Bright House Networks. "Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) initiatives are critical for student success today, and we are dedicated to working together with businesses in the communities we serve to raise awareness about its critical role in educating our youth for tomorrow. Bright Ideas STEM from Today's Youth is a fun way for students to use their creativity and come up with the next addictive app or 'can't live without' tech product."

What will students win? Six lucky finalists will be chosen, one from each of Bright House Networks service areas. These students will travel to Orlando, Fla., where they will compete head-to-head on TV, in front of a studio audience. The program will be recorded and available via Video on Demand (VOD) on Bright House Networks.

At the Finalist Pitch Event, the six confirmed Finalists will have no more than six minutes to pitch their ideas to a panel of experts who will select one lucky winner. The Grand Prize Winner will have the chance to work with lead innovation firm Fahrenheit 212 in New York to build a virtual prototype and a business plan.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was.

This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken.
