Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. has partnered with EverFi, an education company, for the Goodyear Future STEM Leaders Program. The program will extend digital learning opportunities to students at the National Inventors Hall of Fame STEM High School and the associated NIHF Center for STEM Learning in Akron, Ohio.
Currently, only 6% of the 3.8 million ninth graders in the United States are expected to choose a STEM-focused degree in college. However, STEM industries continue to be one of the fastest growing sectors of the economy. The Goodyear Future STEM Leaders Program will provide students with interactive programs that help them build entrepreneurship and science, technology, engineering and math skills.
The Goodyear Future STEM Leaders Program is part of the tiremaker’s broader community engagement efforts focused on STEM career preparedness, road safety, and established volunteer programs near its Akron headquarters.
