Pi Day was especially sweet in 2018 thanks to a generous matching gift from Dan Nicholson, Vice President of Global Propulsion Systems at General Motors and Chair of the SAE Foundation Trustees. With Dan's help, 2018 was the largest Pi Day to date raising $16, 090!
Pi Day – 3/14 – is celebrated to shed light on the importance of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education and to encourage support of SAE’s STEM programs. The goal of the SAE Foundation is to assure that every child has an opportunity to be inspired by the world around them through the A World In Motion Programs®. To achieve this goal, and to emphasize the importance of STEM education, Pi Day will be extended to Pi Week. Beginning Monday, March 11, 2019.
If you would like to participate in Pi Week 2019 - here are some fun ideas to support SAE's STEM education programs:
SAE’s STEM programs have reached over five million students and have brought more than 30,000 industry professionals into classrooms. SAE is the only U.S.-based organization with a full continuum of STEM education programs from preschool through college, including the award-winning A World In Motion® and the Collegiate Design Series™. In addition, the SAE Foundation supports more than 60 awards and recognitions, and a dozen undergraduate and graduate scholarships.
