The non-profit group has been working to get students interested in STEM since 2017 and it also and recruits dirt bike riders to become instructors.

“Some of our past students have been able to secure jobs with Red Bull and NASA, so the tools that they’re learning here and the skills that they’re learning here are transferring into very lucrative careers,” said Larry.
