We all want the new 2016 Chevrolet Volt. It’s smarter, better looking, and more capable than any that have come before it—and those that have come before have been quite successful at DeLillo Chevrolet. But one of the first recipients of the new car is an unlikely one: FIRST, a K-12 robotics program that helps raise money for student robotics opportunities across the country, especially in communities underrepresented in STEM fields.
The all-new 2016 Chevrolet Volt was donated to FIRST to help raise some of those funds. “The Volt exemplifies technology, and behind the next-generation Chevrolet Volt is a diverse team of engineers who understand the power of science and math,” said Steve Majoros, Chevrolet Marketing Director. “FIRST brings science and math alive outside the classroom, just like we are bringing it alive on the road.”
The organization will auction the all-new 2016 Chevrolet Volt, with proceeds going to support its many STEM programs around the United States. This is just the latest of many collaborations between Chevrolet and FIRST—for instance, just last year, GM engineers worked with 866 FIRST teams representing 10,000 students.
