NASHVILLE, Tenn. (March 26, 2014) — Bridgestone Americas Inc. has renewed its sponsorship and commitment to volunteering for Minddrive.
A Kansas City-based non-profit educational program, Minddrive uses the automobile and “experiential learning techniques” to teach at-risk high school students about math and science.
To help fuel Minddrive's 2014 initiatives, Bridgestone said it will provide $30,000 in funding, as well as volunteers who will give more than 250 hours of their time.
Additionally, Bridgestone's tire engineers serve as mentors for Minddrive's 40 Automotive Design Studio students. The team lends its tire technology expertise to help Kansas City-area students design and build a highly sustainable all-electric vehicle for Minddrive's annual summer driving tour.
