The AWIM volunteer at the AWIM JetToy Competition serves as an in-person resource for judging the competition, as well as a mentor/role model for students. As such, you will have the opportunity to influence and enhance the ways in which our youth learn STEM and essential 21st century skills like critical thinking, collaboration, and communication.
