KOTV Tulsa: BMX Aids in STEM Education

CBS-TV affiliate KOTV Channel 6 in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is using the sport of BMX Racing to promote STEM education.

The station’s story, which can be viewed here, was in the context of the BMX Grand Nationals in Oklahoma’s second largest city this weekend.

While most athletes are focused on getting a win, leaders in the sport are focused on using BMX to engage young riders in STEM curriculum. Scott Fry of Mid America Industrial Park says their partnership with USA BMX is doing just that.

“Through the USA BMX Foundation STEM program, it’s a program built around bikes where they learn common hand tools, they learn physics,” said Fry.
