Toyota and Discovery Education Launch Initiative Inspiring Student Innovation in STEM

Toyota’s mission of Mobility for All is at the core of a new education initiative by Toyota and Discovery Education called Keys to Connect. Designed for wherever learning takes place, Keys to Connect includes a variety of no-cost, standards-aligned digital resources that immerse learners at all levels to address transportation challenges and imagine the future of mobility.

Keys to Connect features:

  • A youth engagement challenge designed to motivate and inspire original approaches to societal issues such as transportation.
  • Career profiles to introduce innovators working behind-the-scenes at Toyota to deliver Mobility for All.
  • Virtual field trips and an educator guide, with the first event offering a behind-the-scenes view of the supply chain.

“The aim of Keys to Connect is encourage students to explore what Mobility for All is about,” said Sean Suggs, group vice president, Toyota Social Innovation. “Through exploring transportation challenges in their communities and creating potential solutions, students apply critical thinking skills to improve access to opportunities, connect people in new ways, and build a more inclusive society.”

Keys to Connect builds on a decade partnership between Toyota and Discovery Education, beginning with a teen-focused driving safety program called TeenDrive365
