PPG Donates $14,000 to STEM Education in Denmark

PPG joined Denmark’s Science Day and donated $14,000 to support science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education in the country.

The company joined other businesses, organizations, educational institutions, libraries and museums in opening their doors to students for Science Day, which took place earlier this month.

The funding went to Naturvidenskabernes Hus, a nonprofit group that supports STEM education in Denmark and organizes Science Day.

“There is a shared industry responsibility to contribute to greater diversity in the industry,” said Torben Beck, PPG General Manager, Denmark. “There are still too many people opting out of technical education, and negative stereotypes about manufacturing positions persist. Science Day is an opportunity to inform the future workforce about the many exciting opportunities that STEM education provides.”
