HUMBLE, Texas – It’s time for our Cool Schools weekly spotlight brought to you by Go Public Gulf Coast. This week, we’re featuring Humble ISD for their program that’s expanding beyond the classroom and combining education with extreme sports.
The district partnered with Houston Sports Authority and North Houston BMX to bring the classroom to the new Rockstar Energy Bike Park. Through the program, fourth-graders design and build model bicycle motocross tracks while learning about engineering and earth science.
Students also gain real world experience in subjects like architecture and construction. Materials, training and the field trip to Rockstar Energy Bike Park are all provided by North Houston BMX.
