at a glance, frame circle It’s just one of Denver’s many bike shops. Affordable prices, friendly mechanics and an in-store cafe are just a few of its benefits. But there is a twist: in partnership with Embark EducationSpace offers middle school students the opportunity to learn while doing.
The primary reason FrameworkCycle and Pinwheel Coffee exist The aim is to “provide an authentic, real word classroom experience and help support their learning from a financial standpoint as well,” said Framework’s Shop Manager, Jake Gupta.
The pair of bike shop and cafe serves as a classroom for Embark Education in addition to serving coffee and fixing and selling bikes. This means that students can take electives and core classes within the shop. Micro-middle school focuses on challenge-based learning, an approach that does not involve desks but instead tasks.
If students are working on percentages in math class, they will often include bike shop sales and inventory, Gupta explained.
Unlike traditional middle schools, Embark Education is a tuition-free, private institution with a total of 30 students, 10 per grade. Recent student projects include Reducing environmental impact in bike shops, explaining why prices of almond milk rose and designing a website About reducing your carbon footprint.
Framework hopes to spread awareness of its educational efforts this weekend and is accepting donations during the event. All proceeds from the bike-in will go to bike together To help support cycling education.
Screening will take place in the back yard of the Framework Cycle through an overhead projector. Expect to see these bike-cinephile classics picnic-style from your own chair or blanket.
