Science, technology, engineering, art and math : all are critical aspects of education. But many communities are lacking in means to truly challenge students in these areas. Ford Motor Company recognizes this need.
Over three decades of inspiring youth – an inspiration after the heart of Henry Ford himself for a better world – has cumulated into Ford’s STEAM Experience. Ford Motor Company fosters a commitment toward cultivating interest in American youth to pursue science, technology, engineering, art and math. The company wants to see the legacy of innovation its created continue through generations to come.
Among the STEAM programs are those like Ford High School Science and Technology Program and Ford Next Generation Learning – both of which work to provide hands-on learning experiences through mentorship. Additional programs help to inspire youth where challenges and life-altering educational experiences are limited. Those programs include:
Girls Who Code
Girls’ Fast Track Races
The long-term goal is for these children to discover a passion and drive for one or more of these focus areas, so they will passionately seek a career guided toward creativity and innovation, paving the way of the future. You can find out more on the Ford STEAM Experience website.
