Right now, there are young people in our communities dreaming of the future. At Altice USA, we provide support to this next generation of innovators, helping them acquire the skills to make their dreams of the future a reality.
From mentoring students and hosting innovation celebrations and hackathons to sponsoring STEM events and robotics competitions across the country, to giving hands-on demonstrations of Altice USA’s technology in action, we are dedicated to driving future innovation through STEM.
Part of our commitment to inspiring the next generation of innovators is through our relationship with FIRST® Robotics. We sponsor regional competitions and individual teams across our footprint to make an impact on future innovators in the communities we serve. Our dedicated employees volunteer their time to mentor teams and to volunteer at robotics events across the country.
In 2020, we created the Altice Future Innovator Awards, which recognized the efforts and accomplishments of students involved in the FIRST® Robotics Competition by awarding them additional grants for outstanding achievements in inspiration, improvement, community service and inclusion.
Though we are committed to providing these opportunities year-round, Altice USA also produces the Innovation Roadshow annually, which is a series of events that include a hackathon for university and college students, a technology showcase, and a STEM immersion day for middle and high school students in our local communities.
“We need to expose students to real-world building and problem-solving challenges and enable them to have hands-on experiences to try things they may not have had a chance to try before in a safe learning environment.”
