A World In Motion (AWIM) Glider Challenge
The Glider Competition offers over 100 students (Grades 6-8), teachers and volunteers who have participated in SAE's A World In Motion (AWIM) Glider Challenge Curriculum an opportunity to come together and share what they have learned in the classroom. Students are brought together in teams of 4 to compete in a friendly competition in the following categories: design, performance and maximum flight distance.

SAE International developed the AWIM program 20 years ago; AWIM is a teacher-administered, industry volunteer-assisted program that brings together science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education to life in the classroom for students in Kindergarten through Grade 12. AWIM receives support from corporations, foundations, SAE members and other SAE Foundation resources.
