SAE International, an ANSI member and accredited standards developer, has announced that its “A World In Motion” (AWIM) program has been approved by the Indiana Department of Education as an evidence-based STEM curriculum program through which school districts can apply for grant funding.
AWIM is a program that brings science, technology, engineering, and math education to students in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. Administered by teachers and assisted by industry volunteers, the program uses hands-on activities benchmarked to national learning standards.
“Through SAE’s AWIM program, we strive to deliver on our mission to help today's students become tomorrow's engineers and scientists,” said Chris Ciuca, vice president of programs at SAE International. “This certification will allow AWIM programming to gain wider adoption across the state of Indiana to continue to influence and enhance the ways in which our youth are prepared to meet the challenges of the future. We look forward to helping unlock the potential in every child throughout Indiana with our evidence-based classroom STEM efforts.”
