We recently completed an introductory video for the “Wouldn’t It Be Cool If…” contest. Wouldn’t It Be Cool If… is a new contest jointly presented by Time Warner Cable’s Connect a Million Minds and i.am FIRST, founded by artist will.i.am. The contest challenges kids in two age categories — 10-12 and 13-15 — to dream up the coolest invention idea to make their lives, communities and even the world more AWESOME.
This video includes technology heroes of the past to encourage the viewer to think about the impact these people (and their inventions) have in our daily lives. For example, the invention of the television or electricity.
The video then transitions from these household names to images of the children selected for this contest. Our future technology heroes.
