20 days left: share ideas to improve the world!

Pitch your ideas to artist will.i.am, inventor Dean Kamen and other guest judges. One grand prize winner will work with Fahrenheit 212, a leading innovation firm, to develop their idea.

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.

Now through March 28th, kids can enter the contest by submitting an invention idea and sharing how math and science can make it real. Ideas can be submitted by individuals or teams of 2 or 3 people.

Or, vote for your favorite ideas! If you see an idea you like, click the “Awesome” button on that idea’s page.

I’m thrilled to be among the “Special Guests” of “leading innovators, executives and creatives,” like Dean Kamen and Will.i.am. We are checking out the awesome, submitted ideas, like this one (I want one of these!):
The Amazo Hat, a hat that uses LEDs to change out logos on an as-needed basis. How clever!

Wouldn’t it Be Cool If… is part of Connect a Million Minds, Time Warner Cable’s five year, $100 million commitment to inspire the next generation of problem solvers.

Help spread the word!
