If you don’t know about the world of BMX, it is a dynamic sport with a ton of learning opportunities!

What is BMX?

BMX is one-part Olympic Sport, one-part gravity defying Physics, one-part accessible transportation and one-part problem-based learning that all results in next-level, community-based STEM engagement!

In 2018, approximately 4.7 million U.S. kids ages 6-12 regularly participated in bicycling (16% of that population), according to the Sports & Fitness Industry Association data reflected in Project Play’s 2019 State of Play report.
