Annual Contest Promotes STEAM Education in Local Schools

Giti Tire, a global leader in tire manufacturing, proudly announces the winners of its esteemed STEAM Competition in Chester County, where the company’s first North American manufacturing facility stands. This event underscores Giti Tire’s commitment to nurturing the region’s budding talent and fostering a passion for STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) education.

Winners include:

  • Elementary Division – Great Falls Elementary School
  • Middle School Division – Chester Middle School
  • High School Division – Lewisville High School

Since establishing roots in North America, Giti Tire has actively contributed to shaping the future of engineering and manufacturing in the local community. Partnering with the Chester County School District, Giti Tire launched the Giti Math & Science clubs, now called Giti Tire STEAM Competition, enabling students to refine vital STEAM skills.

Ever since planting a flag in North America with its Chester County plant, Giti Tire has worked to cultivate the next generation of engineers and manufacturers in the local community by investing in education.

The company partnered with the Chester County School District to create Giti Math & Science clubs in schools across the area to help students develop valuable STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) skills. The clubs meet several times throughout the year, culminating with an annual interscholastic contest.

This March Giti sponsored its fifth Math & Science Competition, which continues to encourage Chester County students to get hands-on experience with cutting-edge technology like 3D printing, while inspiring them to develop a love of learning and problem-solving.

“Giti Tire’s dedication extends far beyond the present,” said Phang Wai Yeen, CEO of Giti Tire Manufacturing (USA) Ltd.

“We are invested in equipping local students with the knowledge and passion for technology that will propel them as invaluable contributors to our workforce.”

Giti Tire continues to empower Chester County students with hands-on experiences through the STEAM Competition. The competition is segmented into elementary, middle, and high school tiers and this year students were encouraged to construct roller coaster models using an array of materials such as wood, wire, string, cardboard, and glue.

Judging is based on technical merit, theme and creativity, and the excitement of the ride. Additionally, teams competed for superlative categories including most thrilling, best name, and most creative/unique. New this year, the winning teams from each division will progress to compete out of state.
