Toyota Motor North America understands the importance of creating a highly-educated future, which is why it has donated $1 million to the Society of Automotive Engineers’ science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) initiatives, particularly its LearnTwice program.
“SAE International is honored and humbled by Toyota’s generosity and its confidence in our STEM programs,” said David L. Schutt, PhD, SAE International chief executive officer, in a statement. “As a leader and long-time partner in the STEM community, Toyota’s gift to the SAE International Foundation will allow us to further invest in our entire K-16 STEM portfolio that supports the next generation of engineers through their educational journey.”
Through SAE’s LearnTwice program, college students work with younger children in grades K-12 to teach and demonstrate STEM concepts. This program is based on the idea that when you help teach someone else something, you reinforce that knowledge in yourself, which is like learning something twice.
Here at Capital Toyota, we are proud to be part of a company that wants to invest in the future of our country by helping to educate the next generation, which we feel is one of the best investments anyone can make.
