Subaru of America Nurtures A Love For Science With Online Educational Resources
CAMDEN, N.J: Subaru of America, Inc. announced that in conjunction with longtime partner, the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the automaker has supported the development of a library of educational science-focused activities and resources for families staying largely at home during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“At Subaru, we have seen firsthand how a strong education in science, engineering and innovation can enrich children’s lives and benefit future generations,” said Alan Bethke, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Subaru of America. “While school may look different for some, we hope these resources created in partnership with AAAS help families expand their children’s worlds at home and prove just how fun learning can be.”
The library of resources, created by the AAAS STEM Education Program, provides quality and interactive online activities for young people in grades K-8. The activities, which cover a variety of science disciplines including, biology, astronomy, physics and more, are designed for families to complete together, and can also be incorporated into lesson plans for teachers.
“We are developing resources that encourage inquiry and discovery at home during a time when children may not be receiving as much hands-on science instruction,” said Suzanne Thurston, director of the AAAS STEM Education Program. “Activities are designed to be accessible and easy to navigate.”
Families and teachers can access the resources at the AAAS/Subaru Prize for Excellence in Science Books website, and look for new content each Wednesday posted on the AAAS/Subaru Book Prize social channels on Facebook and Twitter.
The resources were developed as part of the Subaru Loves Learning initiative, the automaker’s Subaru Love Promise commitment to broaden students’ worlds by making learning as accessible as possible.
