A World in Motion 

SAE (the Society of Automotive Engineers) International's A World In Motion® (AWIM) is a teacher-administered, industry volunteer-assisted program that brings science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education to life in the classroom for students in Kindergarten through Grade 12. Benchmarked to the national standards, AWIM incorporates the laws of physics, motion, flight and electronics into age-appropriate hands on activities that reinforce classroom STEM curriculum.  The JCI Foundation (Johnson Controls) has sponsored AWIM in the Plymouth-Canton Schools since 2008 through 16 schools and 2 grade levels.

Michigan’s Stem Connector

National Science Foundation Graduate STEM Fellows in K-12 Education

Through the National Science Foundation’s GK-12 program, institutions of higher education have had an opportunity to make a significant change in STEM graduate and K-12 education programs by creating strong and enduring partnerships.  As these graduate students bring their cutting-edge research and practice into the K-12 classroom, they gain these skills which enable them to explain science to people of all ages, ranging from students to teachers.
