Our Mission

Almost 50% of students think science is irrelevant to their future careers by eighth grade. That percentage will only continue to increase if we don’t act. Early access to equitable STEM education can boost confidence, increase test scores, and ignite potential in STEM.

Our Mission

To inspire every student, to spark curiosity, to create a world where STEM education can nourish minds and awaken dreams.

Our Work

Funds raised by the SAE Foundation support SAE International’s award-winning A World In Motion® (AWIM®) PreK-12 STEM education program, Collegiate Design Series™ (CDS), awards and STEM scholarships.

SAE’s STEM curriculum enables students to connect classroom learning with real-life application and develop the 21st century skills needed to succeed in real-world work environments. SAE’s STEM programs have reached more than 6 million students worldwide and engaged more than 30,000 STEM industry professionals as volunteers.

SAE is the only organization with a comprehensive continuum of Pre-K through College Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education programs.
