USA BMX Foundation Partners with Hardesty Family Foundation to Bring BMX Exhibit to Discovery Lab

Partnership to promote STEM Education through BMX in Tulsa Museum 

TULSA, Okla. (March 26, 2024)—The USA BMX Foundation, Hardesty Family Foundation and Discovery Lab are partnering together to bring a 2,000-square-foot STEM-focused BMX exhibit to the Discovery Lab in Tulsa come 2025. 

The collaboration between the USA BMX Foundation and the Discovery Lab is being supported by the Hardesty Family Foundation in an effort to advance STEM education in the Tulsa community by creating an interactive museum exhibit showcasing the STEM elements inherent in BMX. 

As the exhibit presenting sponsor, the Hardesty Family Foundation has donated a significant amount to make this project possible and will have prominent naming recognition throughout the exhibit and educational materials.

“At the Hardesty Family Foundation, we are big believers in STEM education and hands-on learning,” said Hardesty Family Foundation Executive Director Michelle Hardesty. “We are proud to support this collaboration between the USA BMX Foundation and Discovery Lab—two excellent organizations working tirelessly to ensure kids have the opportunity to combine learning with fun.”

The missions of the USA BMX Foundation and the Discovery Lab work in tandem to inspire confidence in youth through STEM education. Ray Hoyt, executive director of the USA BMX Foundation, said this partnership will allow children to interact with STEM education principles through a sport they can easily engage with.
