Fun and games with science and math
The classroom is alive. Shouts and cheers echo into the hallway. The teacher is happy and the students are giddy with excitement about math and science. What's going on? A visit from the engineers and scientists who volunteer their time for A World in Motion .
Sponsored in part by General Motors, A World in Motionhelps students from grades 4-10 explore physical science while teaching essential mathematic and scientific skills. Volunteer mentors also help motivate students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math.
A World in Motionactivities
Students use trial and error to build paper sailboats and balloon-powered toy cars. These hands-on experiments teach the scientific principles of friction, forces, jet propulsion, air resistance and more.
Students design and build process for a motorized toy car and a glider. In the process, they learn about simple machines, torque, and the effects of lift and weight.
High School Activities
Students take part in in-depth experiments involving transistors and semiconductors, analog integrated circuits, and digital integrated circuits.
A brighter future
Introduced in 1990, A World in Motion has positively influenced students' interest in science.It has also made more students interested in becoming engineers, thanks to their exposure to the program, which reinforces classroom curriculum while sparking students' attention with challenging, interactive and fun experiments and projects.
Available free of charge to schools, A World in Motionhas been implemented at over 15,000 schools across Canada and the U.S. Find out more about A World in Motion , including how to volunteer at www.awim.org.
