In an effort to train students for tomorrow’s workforce, BMW is supporting a school STEM program with a significant financial gift.
Project Lead the Way provides education in science, technology, engineering, and math to students across the country.
“One of the reasons BMW considered its first U.S. plant in the state of South Carolina was because of superb technical colleges and a steadily growing, well-educated workforce,” said vice president of human resources Johannes Trauth. “The industry’s workforce must be ready to meet future technological challenges. These young people are our future engineers, designers and inventors.”
In South Carolina, BMW and Boeing are corporate partners that fund Project Lead the Way in schools.
“Project Lead the Way really provides a transformative learning experience,” Superintendent Quincie Moore said.
