Better and Stronger Together: 2021 Year In Review
Through all of the uncertainty of 2021, we are grateful for the students, teachers, and SAE Foundation℠ community for the constant reminder that we are better and stronger together.
Thanks to donors like you, SAE A World In Motion® (AWIM®) was able to develop a number of exciting new STEM resources including STEM Sagas: Virtually Rerouted—an interactive digital comic book that introduces computer science concepts and facilitates discussions around diversity, equity, & inclusion. AWIM was also recognized with multiple prestigious awards including an SIIA CODiE for “Best Foundational Technology/Engineering (STEM) Instructional Solution.”
2021 was also an important milestone for the SAE Foundation as it marked our 35th anniversary of delivering AWIM’s preschool through high school STEM education
