Hyundai Motor America presented a grant to the School District of Philadelphia on Monday that will continue to provide ST Math, a visually based software program developed by the MIND Research Institute, to 6,000 students and 315 teachers at 19 Philadelphia campuses this year.
This latest effort is part of Hyundai’s ST Math Initiative, a partnership with MIND aimed at improving long-term academic success at high-need schools.
The grant was presented during a special celebration at Philip H. Sheridan Elementary School in Philadelphia that brought together students, teachers, and community leaders.
They included Congressman Chaka Fattah of Pennsylvania’s 2nd Congressional District, Dr. Donyall Dickey, Chief Academic Officer at The School District of Philadelphia, Zafar Brooks, Director of CSR and Diversity Inclusion at Hyundai Motor America, among others.
The event offered a first-hand look at one of the school’s blended learning environments that features the ST Math program.
The initiative benefits over 17,350 students and nearly 800 teachers across cities, including Chicago, Los Angeles, Washington, DC, New York City, among others. Hyundai will look to introduce the program at more cities later this year.
