SAE International’s A World In Motion® (AWIM) program is a teacher-administered, industry volunteer-assisted program that brings science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education to life in the classroom for students in Kindergarten through Grade 12. Benchmarked to the national standards, the AWIM program incorporates the laws of physics, motion, flight and electronics into age-appropriate hands on activities that reinforce classroom STEM curriculum.
Through the support of corporations, foundations, volunteers, SAE members and the SAE Foundation, the A World In Motion program opens a window of possibilities for students as they discover the exciting application of science principles and learn about rewarding engineering, science and technical careers. The students learn to work as a team with their classmates and apply creative problem solving during the activities.
Industry support is essential to this program. Corporations and their employees can influence the ways in which youth are prepared to meet the future by sponsoring schools in their communities. By doing so, schools can qualify to receive free or low cost AWIM program Challenge kits. Volunteering for the AWIM program is a great way to serve as a steward for your chosen profession.
