During the SAE World Congress Annual Banquet held last month in Detroit, Nissan Motor Company’s Toshiyuki Shiga announced that Nissan will donate $250,000 to A World In Motion program.  The A World In Motion program is an award-winning, industry volunteer-assisted program that brings science, technology, engineering and math education to life in the classroom for students K-12.

“Nissan is proud to partner with the SAE Foundation to sustain the roll-out of the A World In Motion® curriculum,” Carla Bailo, Senior VP of Research & Development for Nissan America, told media.  “We live in a technology-based world, so giving children the tools they need to help them understand science and math concepts is vitally important. These innovative materials may help to launch a new generation of engineers, scientists and problem solvers.”

Since 1990, more than 4 million students have benefited from this program.  More than 65,000 activity kits have been provided to teachers and volunteers, and more than 20,000 engineers, scientists and technology professionals have volunteered.
