SAE International’s A World In Motion® (AWIM®) proudly announces the 2022 Chowdhury STEM Innovation Contest! Elementary and middle school students are asked to choose a real-world issue to research, imagine and design their own STEM solution, then create a digital presentation to share their ideas in a fun, engaging way.

The contest is open to students in grades 4-8 in the U.S. and Canada. Both individuals and teams of up to four students are welcomed. We need help from our university teams to act as volunteer judges! We are urgently recruiting for this opportunity - if interested please reach out to [email protected] ASAP to sign up.
