Toyota: Students Invited to Take Peek into the Future of Mobility

Immersive Educational Experience to Explore STEM Concepts set for Oct. 30.

Students will also get an insiders' tour of the University of Michigan's Mcity, the one of a kind urban test facility where industry, government and academia come together to improve transportation, safety, sustainability, and accessibility for the benefit of society.

The Ann Arbor Public Schools in Ann Arbor, Michigan are one of hundreds of school districts across the U.S. expected to participate in the virtual field trip.

"Students will be able to see how the curriculum and hands-on skills we practice daily are implemented into the technological world around them; specifically, in the real world work at Toyota," explains Tom Pachera, Ann Arbor Public Schools STEAM Coordinator.

The Virtual Field Trip is the part of Toyota's TeenDrive365 initiative, which offers a range of content, tools and resources designed specifically for educators, teens and parents. Available at no cost to classrooms nationwide, these resources include: standards-aligned lesson plans for grades 9-12; activities that teach appropriate behaviors for young drivers and passengers.
