WARRENDALE, Pa. (March 27, 2018) – SAE International and the SAE Foundation celebrate National Pi Day – 3/14 – to shed light on the importance of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education and to encourage support of SAE’s STEM programs. Gifts to the SAE Foundation made on March 14, 2018 will be doubled thanks to a substantial matching gift.
Dan Nicholson, Vice President of Global Propulsion Systems at General Motors and Chair of the SAE Foundation Trustees, has generously offered a 2:1 match (up to $10,000) for all Pi Day donations. These gifts will help fill the workforce pipeline with skilled technical talent by supporting programs that champion STEM education around the world.
“I envision a future with more engineers maximizing their innovative potential. I want every child to have the chance that I had to grow up and become and engineer,” said Nicholson. “Inspiring Curiosity in STEM is what it’s all about. I support SAE International’s STEM programs because they are in the classroom inspiring the natural curiosity of kids and this is proven to be effective. STEM education is important because it creates technical leaders for the future which improves life for mankind.”
