A World In Motion®
SAE's A World In Motion® (AWIM®) PreK-12 program brings STEM education to life with an inquiry-based learning experience. We combine practical, hands-on learning and mentorship to provide equitable access to STEM.

Industry Volunteers

Experienced mobility engineers and industry professionals help support teachers in the classroom by providing real-world perspectives while also opening the door to potential STEM majors and career paths.

To encourage volunteer engagement in the classroom, educators can save on AWIM curriculum and material kits with a 25% Volunteer Discount.

Who Can Participate?

Anyone with a passion for supporting students and building connections in their local community is invited to become and AWIM volunteer. Employees can get started as a solo volunteer or recruit a team of colleagues. A variety of engagement options—both in-person and virtual—and flexible time commitments make it possible for any professional to help bring STEM to life for young learners.

In our first AWIM session, volunteers talk for a few minutes about their backgrounds. I tell them—when you design your cars and trucks you’re going to do exactly what I did at GM. You’ll be working with a team. You’ll go to your “Proving Grounds” just like we did at GM. You’ll test your designs and make sure you have good data. Then, just like an engineer, you’ll find ways to get better results.
