In Baltimore, Md., long considered the capital of dirt bike culture, the sport endures. Brittany Young, an elementary school technology instructor and former chemical engineer, is tapping into that love as a platform for something bigger. Through her grant-funded B-360 program, Young is using bike culture to introduce more black children to STEM. At the same time, she hopes to decrease street riding in Baltimore and to challenge the negative perception of this popular hobby. “People think that an engineer looks a certain way, and then people think a dirt bike rider is a certain type of person,” said Young, noting that black people are underrepresented in STEM fields. According to a 2018 report by the Pew Research Center, black people account for 11 percent of the U.S. workforce overall but represent only seven percent of STEM workers with a bachelor’s degree or higher.
