Genesis and TGR Foundation Foster STEAM Education for Youth

2 min read

Genesis and the TGR Foundation have reaffirmed their partnership in advancing STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) education for young people. This ongoing collaboration recently saw Genesis employees volunteering at the TGR Learning Lab in Anaheim, California, to host workshops in partnership with Child Creativity Lab. These sessions provided local youth with the opportunity to explore future mobility vehicles using reclaimed and upcycled materials.

Ash Corson, director of product planning at Genesis Motor North America, was among the key figures present at the event. He shared his automotive journey with the students and gave them a firsthand look at two Genesis models. Additionally, Corson detailed potential career paths in the automotive industry, inspiring many of the young attendees to consider futures in this field.

“Genesis recognizes the importance of supporting programs that provide quality STEAM education to youth from under-resourced communities,” said Corson. “TGR Foundation has been an excellent partner of Genesis, delivering STEAM education to youth at the TGR Learning Lab, helping build the next generation of leaders and creators.”

For more than a quarter of a century, TGR Foundation has empowered students, especially those from under-resourced communities, to pursue their passions through education. Since its inception in 2006, the TGR Learning Lab has provided unique, STEAM-based learning experiences, offering a safe and inspiring environment for local youth. The lab’s programs are designed to connect students to tangible career paths, preparing them for success in school and beyond.

John Lee, TGR Foundation’s senior vice president of programs, expressed gratitude for Genesis’s continued support. “We’re grateful for the ongoing support of Genesis as we provide opportunities to help students connect what they’re learning in the classroom to the real world. The hands-on activities with Child Creativity Lab combined with vehicle tours and insights from Genesis professionals was an impactful experience for our students.”

Additionally, students from the TGR Learning Lab were given an exclusive tour of the Genesis design studio in Irvine, California. During the visit, they learned about various design careers from industry experts. John Krsteski, senior chief designer of Genesis Design North America, provided insights into the design and modeling processes for future Genesis vehicles.
