Racing Theme Car Show / SAE’s “A World In Motion” Demonstration for Kids / Ford Power Stroke Diesel Training & Door Prizes!
A little information about our host, Hiller Ford, Inc…
Ken Hiller opened the doors to Hiller Ford on May 1, 1954. Today, Hiller Ford is one of the largest Ford dealerships in the state of Wisconsin, and a winner of Ford’s prestigious President’s Award for the 9th time. No other dealership our size in Wisconsin has ever won it once! “I’d like to say it has been a privilege to serve our fine customers over the past 56 years. We have been very fortunate to be a part of the great community we serve.” – Jay Hiller (Pres.)

We are privileged to get up-close with a variety of race cars, through our friends at Slinger Speedway and Road America , along with some exotic street racers!
Slinger Speedway, located in Slinger, WI, features six divisions of racing on a weekly basis. It showcases Super Late Models, Late Models, Sportsman, Thunderstock, Slinger Bees, and Figure 8 cars on Sunday nights from May until September. The Super Late Models, Late Models, and Sportsman divisions all feature cars with specially built chasis and a wider variety of modifications that are allowed under the rules than the Thunderstock and Slinger Bee divisions. Thunderstock and Slinger Bees are the stock classes of the track. The rules allow few modifications other than for safety, especially in the Slinger Bee division.
“We look to have one of our Super Late Models, one from Sportsman, and one from the Thunderstock division on display at the SAE Family Night at Hiller Ford – providing that nothing happens to them on the track, on May 1st or 2nd!” – Nicole (Slinger PR)
Road America is a legendary fixture in the racing community. Racers relish the circuit’s challenging turns, curves and highspeed straights. The track follows the weeping, rolling hills of the glacially-formed terrain providing drivers and riders with dramatic elevation changes. Many world champions have tested their skills here and return yearly to set new records. SAE Milwaukee Section is proud to have partnered with them!
Here’s some of our featured vehicles for display on May 6th!
* Jerry Ritzow will have his Saleen S7 (650 h.p. street-legal, supercar), along with his Ford GT.
* Roger Ritzow will bring his (new) ’56 Chrysler 300 B (850 h.p. of “radical ride”!)
* Tony Brodzeller’s (of Ken Cook) 1999 Saleen Mustang S281-SC Speedster
SAE’s “A World In Motion” (AWIM)
Helping Today’s Students Become Tomorrow’s Engineers and Scientists!
SAE International’s A World In Motion® (AWIM) is a teacher-administered, industry volunteer-assisted program that brings science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education to life in the classroom for students in Kindergarten through Grade 12. Benchmarked to the national standards, AWIM incorporates the laws of physics, motion, flight and electronics into age-appropriate hands on activities that reinforce classroom STEM curriculum.
Through the support of corporations, oundations, volunteers, SAE members and the SAE Foundation, AWIM opens a window of possibilities for students as they discover the exciting application of science principles and learn about rewarding engineering, science and technical careers. The students learn to work as a team with their classmates and apply creative problem solving during the activities.
The A World In Motion program builds bridges between corporations and classrooms by giving teachers, volunteers, and students the opportunity to work together and learn from each other.
Industry support is essential to this program. Corporations and their employees can influence the ways in which youth are prepared to meet the future by sponsoring schools in their communities. By doing so, schools can qualify to receive free or low cost AWIM Challenge kits. Volunteering for AWIM is a great way to serve as a steward for your chosen profession.
Along with our car racing theme, we will be demonstrating and learning with the car kits, with guidance of teachers from the Franklin School District:
• Jet Toy Car (for grades 4th-6th) Students make balloon-powered toy cars that meet specific performance criteria like; travels far, carries weight, or goes fast. Jet propulsion, friction, air resistance and design are the core scientific concepts students explore in this challenge.
• Motorized Toy Car (for grades 7th-8th) Students develop new designs for electric gear driven toys. The students are involved in writing proposals, drawing sketches, and working with models to develop a plan to meet a specific set of design requirements. Force and friction, simple machines, levers and gears, torque and design are the core scientific concepts covered in this challenge.
• Fuel Cell (for grades 7th-8th) This design presents students with the opportunity to investigate a new and developing technology; the fuel cell. Over the course of the curriculum, a variety of activities introduce students to the development and use of fuel cells, types of fuel cells, and hands-on experiments with a PEM (proton exchange membrane) fuel cell to produce electricity to power an electric motor.
Some AWIM facts: Since 1990:
• Over 4 million students have participated in AWIM program in all 50 U.S. states and 10 of 13 Canadian provinces and territories. AWIM is now in India as well.
• More than 65,000 activity kits have been provided to teachers and volunteers
• Over 20,000 engineers, scientists and technology professionals have volunteered in partnership with the A World In Motion program
Additional kits available:
Elementary (Grades 4-6):
Skimmer – Students construct paper sailboats and test the effect of different sail shapes, sizes, and construction methods to meet specific performance criteria. Students learn about friction, forces, the effect of surface area and design in this challenge.
Electricity & Electronics – This challenge provides teachers with activities that focus on principles of electronics by providing teachers with hands-on experiments involving static electricity, batteries and capacitors. (Under Revision)
Middle School (Grades 7-8):
Glider – Students explore the relationship between force and motion and the effects of weight and lift on a glider. Students learn the relationships between data analysis and variable manipulations, and the importance of understanding consumer demands. The glider activity culminates in a book-signing event where each design team presents its prototype and the class presents its manuscripts to Mobility Press “representatives” and members of the local community.
Electricity & Electronics – This challenge provides teachers with activities that focus on principles of electronics by providing teachers with hands-on experiments involving circuits, magnetism and electronics. (Under Revision)
Electricity & Electronics – The Electricity & Electronics kit provides teachers with activities that guide student teams through experiments involving transistors and semiconductors and analog and digital integrated circuits. (Under Revision)
The AWIM program is made possible from donations made through the SAE Foundation – We can help you fulfill your corporate philanthropy and community relations goals by providing you with the opportunity to fund programs which provide enriching STEM education, and provide opportunities for community outreach through volunteerism in SAE education programs. By working in partnership with the SAE Foundation, you can tailor your resources to fulfill your goals while also supporting education that will inspire the next generation of innovators.
