A World In Motion®

Our program brings Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education to life for students in grades PreK-12 with hands-on activities.

Getting Started as an AWIM Volunteer

Volunteers are the hallmark of the A World In Motion program. However, we realize that sometimes potential volunteers need some help in getting started. Below is a simple step-by-step process to help you introduce and ultimately implement a local AWIM program.

STEP #1 – Check to See if Your Employer or SAE Section Already Supports AWIM

Check to see if your employer or SAE Section already supports and AWIM Special Initiative.AWIM Special Initiatives are funded AWIM programs and participating companies or sections typically have a contact within their organization to help get you started. If your company is part of a funded Special Initiative, contact the person listed in the tab above or the AWIM staff (awim@sae.org) for help getting started.If your company or SAE Section is not a funder of an AWIM Special Initiative, proceed to step #2.

STEP #2 – Recruit a School

Recruiting a new school to participate in AWIM is easy with the proper tools. Below are some resources to help you get started:

AWIM Presentation (PowerPoint Format)
AWIM Presentation (PDF Format)
AWIM Brochure / Flyer

The tools above will provide the essential information the school system will be looking for before agreeing to participate in any supplemental educational experience. We recommend starting with your child’s teacher (if you have a child attending the school) or the principal/school administration as the initial contact with the school.

STEP #3 – Partner with a local organization to generate funding

This could be a service organization such as a Rotary Club or another community organization.
