Nissan

For more than 20 years, Nissan has worked together with the SAE Foundation℠ to reach the youngest learners and advance equitable STEM education.

Initially launched in five communities where Nissan employees live and work including Arizona, Michigan, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Texas, Nissan’s long-term global investment of over $2.8 million in SAE International’s award-winning A World In Motion® (AWIM®) STEM education program has reached more than 500,000 students worldwide.

Nissan provided underwriting for the development of four AWIM primary challenges for students in grades K-3. This funding also supported the development of teacher training to support educators in facilitating deep learning experiences for their students.

Nissan sponsorship of the Annual Celebration—the Foundation’s largest source of unrestricted funding, directly benefits teachers and students who otherwise might not have access to high-quality, hands-on STEM programming.

Nissan is committed to advancing social, economic, and environmental sustainability while breaking down accessibility barriers to increase STEM diversity and inclusion. By continuing to deepen the investment in communities through the SAE Foundation, we can create support systems for marginalized populations and educators—building the workforce of tomorrow.
