SAE Foundation and Honeywell Partner to Launch AWIM Program

WARRENDALE, Pa., March 6, 2008 - SAE International’s A World In Motion® (AWIM) program is partnering with Honeywell Transportation Systems to launch the Honeywell/SAE Student Automotive Design Challenge.

Honeywell is pledging $40,000 to the SAE Foundation for 2008.  The funds will be used to produce and ship learning materials to K-12 classrooms and to train teachers and Honeywell volunteer engineers to use the AWIM curriculum. 

"We very much appreciate Honeywell's commitment to the A World In Motion program," Carson Walburn, SAE Foundation Director, said.  "This contribution is a testament to Honeywell's support of math and science education, and we look forward to working with Honeywell to bring this education to life in the classroom."

A part of SAE International, the SAE Foundation supports and nurtures students' enthusiasm for science and technology through educational outreach programs, awards and scholarships.  Programs like AWIM join together teachers, students and industry volunteers in a hands-on exploration of physical science while addressing mathematic and scientific concepts and skills.
