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.

    To view the Multimedia News Release, go to:
    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

    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
    To explain the popularity and success of this award-winning and
nationally recognized program, one has only to do the math:

       classrooms in all 50 states and 10 of Canada's 13
    -- More than 60,000 A World in Motion kits have been shipped to schools
