Strider Bikes Announces New STEM Curriculum for Early Childhood Educators

Strider Sports understands that curiosity, imagination and learning begins well before a child enters formal education. Its bikes have taught over one million toddlers how to ride on two wheels. As the leading manufacturer and marketer of children’s No-Pedal Balance Bikes, STRIDER has been inspiring riding and exploration in toddlers for over seven years. Its newest curriculum, the STRIDER Early Childhood STEM Curriculum, gives preschoolers and kindergartners the opportunity to explore new ideas and worlds related to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) through something that kids their age can relate to: a STRIDER No-Pedal Balance Bike.

As a company that thrives on inspiring kids to ride as early as possible, Strider Sports believes it is essential to introduce children to STEM along with physical play at a very young age. Studies show that children who experience STEM learning early through hands-on activities are best equipped to develop a strong understanding of STEM concepts as they continue their education.

The Strider Early Childhood STEM Kit contains five 12” STRIDER Bikes, five Strider Bell Helmets and a professionally designed and rigorously evaluated curriculum featuring five lesson plans and materials. Each kit is available for sale to educators for $699, and can be purchased by calling the Education Department at Strider Sports.

STRIDER™ balance bikes are industry-leading training bikes that help children as young as 18 months learn to ride on two wheels. STRIDER balance bikes focus on the fundamentals of balancing, leaning, and steering without the distractions and complications of pedals or training wheels. The STRIDER’s simple, no-pedal design builds confidence and eliminates fear by allowing kids to have their feet on the ground and progress at their own pace.
