A World In Motion PreK-8 STEM Education Program
TODAY’S STUDENTS. TOMORROW’S INNOVATORS.
The SAE Pre-K-8 STEM education program—A World In Motion® (AWIM)—is a hands-on, inquiry-based learning experience that brings STEM to life, setting young learners on a path of lifelong journey of personal discovery. Benchmarked to Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards, AWIM offers engaging, real-world STEM challenges developed to the “engineering design experience” where students design, build, test, and present a solution/product. See the AWIM program in action:
AWIM puts tools in the hands of educators and families to spark interest and achievement in STEM subjects while sharpening problem solving and communication skills, providing a solid foundation to help students succeed in future education and career endeavors. With an easily adaptable program model, the AWIM STEM curriculum supports deep learning experiences in different education environments whether virtual, at-home or in–school.
Equitable STEM Education
SAE advances equitable STEM education, increasing teachers’ proficiency and confidence in STEM subjects while breaking down barriers of gender, ethnicity, geography and socioeconomic background to reach ALL students, not just those who have existing interest in math and science. By combining practical, experiential learning with mentorship, AWIM delivers solid results with measurable impact, paving an equitable path to future STEM career opportunities.
