The USA BMX STEM Kit is hands down one of the best resources for innovative and dynamic afterschool programs. We use the USA BMX STEM curriculum – an 8-module series – to familiarize our afterschool riders with their BMX bikes and apply school-day learning concepts to their actual passion – riding BMX. It is an extremely successful pairing. Moreover, once we establish the appropriate learning connections, we capitalize on the Kits high-quality, extremely subsidized equipment to get as many kids as possible competing in the world of USA BMX. Last year we engaged 35 new riders, students who otherwise do not participate in anything – school or after school – in a year-long competition circuit. The results were tremendous and we fully anticipate doubling that number this year.
The creation of the BMX STEM program was one of the best things we have ever done in my time at USA BMX. We look forward to continuing success of this program, as well as the development of additional education offerings in the future.
