USA BMX STEM Program Reaches 15,000 Kids
GILBERT, Ariz.—USA BMX, the world’s largest bicycle motocross organization, announced its Science Technology Education and Math (STEM) Program has distributed more than 1,500 BMX bikes.
The 2-year-old school-based program has integrated into more than 150 schools from Walla Walla, Wash., to Jacksonville, Fla., and has reached more than 15,000 students nationwide.
“The creation of the BMX STEM Program was one of the best things we have ever done in my time at USA BMX,” said CEO B.A. Anderson. “We look forward to the continued success of this program, as well as the development of additional educational offerings in the future.”
Created in 2013, the USA BMX STEM Program was the first STEM curriculum developed and sanctioned by an Olympic sport. Free Agent BMX, one of the top BMX bike manufacturers in the world, sponsors the program.
“Free Agent has a long history of supporting school-based initiatives, and we are proud to partner with USA BMX on such a dynamic education program like this one,” said Wayne D. Gray, Free Agent BMX vice president.
