Running 10 manufacturing plants across America, Toyota knows how important it is to inspire students to concentrate on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) and assure the future growth of manufacturing in the US.
Among the automaker’s effort to sustain the cause is Toyota’s Advanced Manufacturing Technician Program, which teaches high school senior the STEM skills they need to work in Toyota plants. The program includes a two-year associate degree, technical studies and paid work experience.

The New York Hall of Science (NYSCI) honored Toyota for its commitment with the Global Science Award. Osamu “Simon” Nagata, president and chief executive officer of Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America, accepted the award at NYSCI’s annual gala this week.

“You can’t run a business in the 21st century without technology playing a major role. The best corporations know that educating young people for STEM jobs in the future is key to their success,” said Dr. Margaret Honey, president and CEO of NYSCI. “Toyota is a fantastic example of a company that is using the power of STEM education to create incredible innovations in sustainability and safety to make the world a better place.”
