In 2016, STEM Sports® was derived and born from efforts that produced the first-of-its kind STEM BMX curriculum program for USA BMX, the world’s largest BMX racing organization. Developed by the Huddle Up Group, led by owner Jon Schmieder, the STEM BMX program created new methods of STEM education to improve STEM literacy for elementary and middle school aged students throughout the United States.
Soon thereafter, STEM Sports® worked with USA Volleyball and developed STEM Volleyball, which was then followed by STEM Basketball. In 2017, STEM Sports® brought on Agency G, owned by Jeff Golner, as the agency of record to develop the marketing-to-sales strategy. Those efforts soon led to Golner acquiring STEM Sports® in its entirety. At approximately the same time, STEM Sports® launched STEM Football, STEM Soccer and STEM Multi-Sport turnkey curriculum kits. In late 2018, STEM Sports was granted the trademark registration for the brand name STEM Sports by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. In 2019 and 2020, new curricula will be introduced to the market, such as STEM Baseball, STEM Golf, STEM Hockey, STEM Lacrosse, STEM Softball STEM Tennis and a STEM Multi-Sport kit geared for K-2 students.
Since inception in 2016, STEM Sports® has grown considerably with its curriculum being implemented in schools, after-school programs and camps across the United States. Curriculum sales have quadrupled from 2017 to 2018, and sales are on pace to double in 2019. This growth can be attributed to the ever-growing need for engaging and appealing STEM curriculum so that young students can see potential career paths. Additionally, STEM Sports® is partnering and collaborating with entities that align with its mission and vision.
