We are thrilled to announce that the SAE A World In Motion® (AWIM®) PreK-8 STEM program has been named winner of the SIIA CODiE 2021 award for “Best Foundational Technology/ Engineering (STEM) Instructional Solution.”
The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal trade association for the software and digital content industries, announced the full slate of CODiE winners during an online winner announcement in light of ongoing COVID-19 concerns. AWIM was recognized as one of 45 winners across the 43 education technology categories, including three new categories developed in response to COVID-19.
This award follows SAE STEM@Home being named the EdTech Cool Tool “Best Parent/Student Solution” with AWIM also being selected as a finalist in the “Best Skills (21st Century Skills) Solution” category.
“We are honored to be recognized by the SIIA CODiE and EdTech Cool Tool Awards for our A World In Motion PreK-8 STEM education program, as it is a testament to the donors, students, teachers and industry volunteers who make this programming possible in communities around the globe,” said Chris Ciuca, vice president of programs at SAE International. “We believe it’s never too early for young learners to start exploring STEM concepts and have tailored the AWIM curriculum to engage and excite students as early as preschool through play and discovery as we build STEM fluency.”
Starting with the youngest learners, the SAE A World In Motion (AWIM) STEM education program brings STEM concepts to life in and out of the classroom, setting students on a path of lifelong learning and discovery. With 18 STEM Challenges spanning PreK through eighth grade, the hands-on curriculum combines practical, experiential learning with mentorship from industry volunteers and ongoing training and support for educators. To date, SAE’s AWIM programs have reached more than 6 million students.
You can help us in our mission to ensure all young learners have access to enriching, hands-on STEM programming. Every gift makes a difference.
