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 successful new methods of STEM education to improve STEM literacy for elementary and middle school aged students throughout the United States.

Soon thereafter, STEM Sports® 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 supplemental curriculum kits. In late 2018, STEM Sports was granted the trademark registration for the logo and brand name STEM Sports by the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
