he STEM Bicycle Club is a program at Southwestern School Corporation that encourages students to become interested and pursue further education in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) career fields after graduation from SWHS. This program was made possible by grant money received from Eco15 of Jefferson County led by Ms. Katie Wood. The money was used to purchase mountain bikes, bike stands, helmets, tools, and other accessories. The program was open to all 7th grade students at Southwestern with 13 students enrolling. The club met each Thursday after school for 1.5-2 hours over the 10 week program. 


The students initially assembled their bicycles out of the box then disassembled and reassembled all the systems of the bicycle. This included...removing/installing wheels after changing tires/tubes, attaching brake cables and adjusting for proper performance, tightening of stem and handlebars for proper positioning, adjusting derailleurs for proper shifting, removal and installation of crankset with cleaning and greasing, and adjusting all components for proper fit. 


The program culminated on Saturday May 14, 2016. The students took a bike ride with MABC members leading the ride. The students rode 3.25 miles from Southwestern around Hanover College and back. Additionally, some also joined in riding to Chelsea General Store. The ride was very cold (50 degrees) and windy (12-15 mph winds out of the northwest) but the students persevered without much complaint.  We are very proud of these thirteen students that completed this 10 week program. MABC members, Dave Fleming and Mickey Waller assisted the club as mentors over the 10 week period. Each student also received a free MABC membership that includes a 10% discount on all purchases at Fizz'z Bike Shop.  We hope this becomes a yearly program.  


Additional mentors were Andrew Garrett and Grayson Bond from Grote Manufacturing and Dale Mabry from VSG. Dave Bramer, STEM teacher at Southwestern, was the leader of this program.
