Video: Math, Science And Children - A Race For Fun And The Future



    LOS ANGELES, Sept. 12 /CNW/ -- If seeing is believing, then attending the
"A World in Motion" competition with 140 fifth-graders from the 186th Street
School should be quite a convincing sight.

    A World in Motion is SAE International's curriculum program that joins
teachers, students, and industry volunteers in an exploration of physical
science while addressing essential mathematic and scientific concepts and
skills. A World in Motion will hold a Jet Toy competition at the Los Angeles
Convention Center (West Hall) on Tuesday, Sept. 18, from 11:45 a.m. to 1:15
p.m.

    The event is part of the SAE 2007 AeroTech Congress and Exhibition.

    The students will design, construct and race these balloon-powered toy
vehicles. Track sponsors are Alcoa Fastening Systems, Northrop Grumman and
Toyota.
    To explain the popularity and success of this award-winning and
nationally recognized program, one has only to do the math:

    
    -- A World In Motion is part of elementary, middle and high-school
       classrooms in all 50 states and 10 of Canada's 13
       provinces/territories.
    -- More than 60,000 A World in Motion kits have been shipped to schools
       since the program began in 1990.
    -- It's estimated that more than 3.75 million students across North
       America have participated in A World in Motion programs.
    -- More than 15,000 engineers have volunteered time to A World in Motion
       programs.
    

    Of course, the numbers don't tell the whole story, so please click on the
video that is part of this release -- true evidence that excitement, learning
and fun can all go hand-in-hand to prepare children for the technology based-
future ahead of them.
