SAE Foundation Annual Report 2014 - 13


Since 1992, Derek Logan has been instrumental in advancing the AWIM activities in
Arizona and the Maricopa Unified School District in particular. During this time his roles
have ranged from strategic growth of the program to classroom volunteer to corporate
volunteer coordinator and everything in between.
In the early years of the AWIM program, Mr. Logan immediately recognized the importance
hands-on integrated STEM education in the classroom and the value of AWIM in educating
our students. His tireless
efforts brought AWIM to
Phoenix, Arizona and the
Chandler School District.
Furthermore, when
transferred to Mexico City
he coordinated efforts in
bringing AWIM to students
there.
Most recently, Mr. Logan
has led the AWIM
program within Nissan
in Arizona. His many
years of engineering and design experience coupled with his passion for educating the
next generation of innovators and engineers has led him to working with teachers and
administrators to get AWIM in many new schools even under initial resistance.
Going the extra mile defines Derek Logan. He doesn't stop with just the AWIM activity.
After each 6-week program he organizes a tour of the Nissan proving ground for all of
the students, teachers and participating administrators. The tour includes a dynamic
vehicle demonstration on the 12-acre skid pad where the teachers, and sometimes the
bus drivers, get a spirited spin around the vast paved surface. The event is capped off by
presenting a "traveling trophy" to the teacher/classroom of the overall winning team.
Thanks to people like Derek Logan the AWIM program is successfully impacting the lives
thousands of K-8 students across the United States and beyond every year.
