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.

University Volunteers: LearnTwice™

Think about everything you’ve learned about engineering. Now think about the people who inspired you along the way. SAE International’s LearnTwice™ program provides university students with a unique opportunity to inspire young learners participating in A World In Motion® (AWIM®). LearnTwice participants receive the resources and training to support the implementation of AWIM in a local elementary or middle school classroom. LearnTwice gives students preparing to enter the workforce a chance to share knowledge and encourage curiosity with the next generation. By volunteering through LearnTwice, university teams also earn funding to put towards SAE competition expenses while giving back to their community. LearnTwice is open to all active current season university teams participating in any of SAE International's University Programs. This includes all events that are part of the Collegiate Design Series™ or Emerging Technology Series™.

Going back to teach "A World In Motion" to kids in fifth grade just reminded me of what I was when I was in fifth grade and how inspired I was and seeing the look on their face when they saw their car roll across the ground for the first time, it was just an instant reminder of why I'm doing what I'm doing.
