Bike experts from Quality Bike Products, a local bike parts distributer, came to NEMS on Dec. 5th to collaborate with 6th grade science teacher Mr. Rice. These expert volunteers led students through engaging, hands-on experiences by deconstructing bikes and focusing on how a bicycle works as a system. Students classified four separate sub-systems on the bikes and “reverse engineered” each of these. As this was the second successful year of having a group of experts come in, Mr. Rice plans on keeping this part of the curriculum in the future.
