All across the country, students of all ages are learning the importance of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). To make sure these students get the best education they can, Toyota supports STEM programs and just announced $1.9 million in grants for those programs.
These grants will support programs from New York to California and many states in between. Some of the programs include the Alabama Center for Sustainable Energy, which will receive a $100,000 grant to help teach K-12 students about clean energy, design, engineering, project management, and construction. Another $50,000 grant will go to the Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts to expand the Girls Building Self-eSTeEM program for K-12 girls.
“We know that the future of our society will be built on increasingly sophisticated technological expertise and innovative problem solving,” said Michael Rouse, Toyota USA Foundation President, in a statement. “That’s why Toyota USA Foundation is proud to support these nonprofits, who are creating exciting opportunities to train and inspire the next generation of leaders in science, technology, engineering and math.”
Here at Capital Toyota, we are proud to be a part of such a great company that works so hard to support and build up the next generation.
