SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Students from across Onondaga County are taking part in a week-long field trip. The 18th annual Bristol-Myers Squibb Science Horizons kicked off this week.
Forty middle school students get to tour the Bristol Myers campus, do hands-on experiments, and eat lunch with the scientists.
Wednesday, they learned about research being conducted at Bristol-Myers Squibb.
"It's very unique because a lot of students are not able to come to Bristol Meyers and be able to be toured around and learn about the scientists and everything that is here," said student Ashley Patterson from H.W Smith .
The Science Horizons program is led by teachers, alumni and current students from local Universities. It's one of the many programs dedicated to the education of our youth.. And Time Warner Cable is proud to be a part of that effort, with the Connect a Million Minds program.
The company is sponsoring programs and buying equipment to give students a hands on learning experience.
Time Warner Cable is the parent company of YNN and we are committed to the Connect a Million Minds program, inspiring youth to develop science, technology, engineering and math skills. For more information on the initiative, go to www.connectamillionminds.com.
