Toyota STEAM Program Helps Educators Prepare Students for Rewarding Careers
As one of the world’s largest automakers, Toyota is dedicated to educating the next generation so that they might find steady employment in the manufacturing industry. As part of this dedication, the automaker invites educators from schools across the country to participate in the Toyota Education Initiatives in STEAM Innovation program (also known as the Toyota STEAM program). The program teaches secondary educators to educate and inspire their students to pursue careers in the Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) fields.
