NSERC Donation Broadens SAE Foundation Program in Canada

WARRENDALE, Pa., March 2, 2007 - SAE International's A World In Motion® (AWIM) program now will be available to more Canadian school students because of a $76,100 donation from the National Sciences and Research Engineering Council (NSERC).

Through AWIM, math and science come to life for students in grades 4 through 10. AWIM provides interactive learning experiences through its “Challenges” (its series of four curricula). Each AWIM Challenge is developed around current math, science and technology standards. The donation to the SAE Foundation Canada, to be paid in three installments, supports AWIM throughout that nation.

"I want to thank NSERC for their generous donation to the A World In Motion program," Carson Walburn, SAE Foundation Canada Director, said. "The funding will help us offer this dynamic, effective curricula to even more Canadian students. NSERC should be commended for its vision and commitment to advancing math and science."

A part of SAE International, the SAE Foundation Canada supports and nurtures students' enthusiasm for science and technology through educational outreach programs, awards and scholarships. Programs such A World In Motion and the Collegiate Design Series offer hands-on learning through fun and challenging curricula to elementary school and college students.
